    you can defnitely see some simililarities if not a big influence, everything in the move is Magic!

    I was thinking Pau when I saw the video but you're right tbabyy it must rather be Marc

    We'll see how he does in the Olympics. I'm rather looking forward to Paul showing him how it's done.

    That was a classic Tinsley.

    What was special about that move? At least half of the players in the NBA could do that.

    Not many 17-year-olds, though.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    These threads with one YouTube clip as the basis of the argument are getting old.

    The amount who could do that in a game in the NBA is far less than half IMO. But at the same time, it only means he might dribble as well as Jamaal Tinsley. Doesn't say anything else to me.

    I've heard about rubio since he was 13 on draftexpress, he will be the #1 pick next year and has played the best competition in europe for years. Hopefully we get to see him in the olympics

    Why can't he just be Ricky Rubio?
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    I've wanted him for a while.

    He reminds me of someone else, in more ways than one:

    Except he didn't grunt as he missed the layup (cause JT wouldn't have passed the ball), then foul his man at the other end out of frustration. Oh yeah, then miss the rest of the season with an owwy

    Well it is better to compare him to Magic Johnson than to compare the two guys defending him to Bill Russel and T.R. Dunn.

    Pathetic.

    On the other hand I have no idea who this guy is or if he ever going to amount to anything but let's all pray that we never see those two on defense in the NBA.

    No doubt.

    Watching the Runi clip reminded me again of how bad the on-the-ball defense is in the Old World. He wasn't able to make this kind of passes over here without getting the ball taken away from him, mostly because his defenders weren't helpfully staying 5 feet away to give him clear passing lanes.
