    That's all kinds of sick. I love it. I sure hope all three of these guys play in the summer league so we might see more of this.

    Looks like Rubio might play a little soccer. The classic "act like you are injured to take some of the focus off you getting beat." Lol...he grabs like three different body parts like they are in pain in all of 5 seconds of action.

    morey said he probably will not play in summer league. He said Llull and Lior Eliyau both play big minutes for top 5 european teams, so it would be hard to get them over here.

    Looks like he damn near pulled a Shaun Livingston there, doing the splits after that crossover.

    Perfectly understandable, that. A shame... but there's always YouTube for their international highlights.

    wow. behind the back dribble at full speed. nice handles there.

    and that split by rubio looks painful. slippery floors really suck. he need to get shoes with better traction

    He is a young player who contributes on a serious team in a serious league. I don't understand why people get all bent out of shape over 2nd round picks. Chances are you are not going to know the players are unless you follow prospects very closely. But that doesn't mean there isn't some serious potential there. The dude has good size and shoots at a very high percentage inside and outside of the arc.

    some of his write-ups on draftexpress make him seem very promising.

    Sergio Llull leads the league in the % of the letter "L" in his last name, no?

    Yeah I gave it a few more looks and I have to admit it looks a little more violent than my first glance.

    He is 100% not a point guard. He's got some talent for sure, but he's absolutely a pure shoot first, scoring guard. He's like a bigger Aaron Brooks. As for his current level, in Europe V-Span is 10 times the player Lull is.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, he has the greatest percentage of a single repeated letter in any player's last name in the history of NBA, at 80%.
