Notice how the pack of leaders (which includes some big names) is more or less together, except for Rubio. Then realize he's 16, and he's playing only 18 minutes a game.



When he was 15, in the Under-16 World Championships, Rubio finished the gold medal game with 51 points, 24 rebounds, 12 assists and 7 steals. Spain won, surprise surprise. DraftExpress has a lot more links about him.
