Is J-Lin Overrated? The 2012-13 NBA Point Guard Rankings

13. Ricky Rubio, Minnesota Timberwolves

2011-2012 Stats: 10.6 PPG 4.2 RPG 8.2 APG 2.2 SPG
2012-2013 Salary: $3.7 million

OK, let's get his frightening 35 percent field goal percentage out of the way. He can't shoot, we're all aware of that, but once he was named the starter the T'wolves became a playoff team. Then he tore his ACL and they fell back to the depths of hell. The kid has been hyped up since he started playing in Europe professionally at 16. So, we guess you can say he hasn't lived up to the billing. But, you can't deny his knowledge of the game. Ricky has great court vision which allows him to drop dimes on demand and his lanky arms allow him to play the passing lanes well. He shoots a decent percentage from beyond the arc (34percent) and most importantly, makes everyone around him better. Isn't that what a point guard is supposed to do?
