The Downbeat: Ricky Rubio’s chance to prove himself

New, comments

This season is huge for Ricky Rubio to prove his worth

The Ringer recently wrote about three point guards that show the evolution of the game.

It’s a great read from one of the best out there in Jonathan Tjarks. I have to agree when he talks about this being one of Ricky Rubio’s last chances to prove his worth. Count me as one of those who thinks Rubio will be a vital part of a very good season for the Utah Jazz.

Salt Lake City had a very interesting visitor recently.

I appreciate Jabari Parker’s willingness to speak out on important issues. Here he is seen speaking at the SLC Solidarity Rally. He’s truly one of the great people in the NBA and I’m happy that he has a platform to share his thoughts.

From a basketball perspective, it’s interesting to me that Jabari is visiting Salt Lake City. Is there a reason he’s here related to the Jazz? It’s well documented that Jabari is from Chicago and chose to go to Duke over BYU. During the draft he was excited about being picked by Milwaukee because of its proximity to Chicago. So it makes me wonder what ties he may have here. If you know, let us know in the comments. For now, I’ll just assume he’ll be a Jazzman at some point.

Rudy Gobert’s muscle watch continues. If I’m an opposing center in the NBA, I start getting real scared of Utah. Rudy isn’t pulling any punches this season.

Can we take a minute to appreciate the work that Taylor Griffin has been putting in. I love this recent edit of Donovan Mitchell!

Finally, NBA 2K18 announced it will feature “all-time” teams in its upcoming release.

What is your “all-time” Utah Jazz squad?
