(Timberwolves Ricky) Rubio hasn’t proven that he can stay healthy or that he can shoot well enough to be considered a reliable offensive threat.

Those two roadblocks continue to stunt his development at a time when the NBA is stacked with elite point guards. That’s the league’s best and deepest position, and Rubio acknowledged in a recent conversation that his shooting has prevented him from joining that next tier of point guards.

“I have confidence in me,” he said. “I think I can be great in this league. To do that, I need to improve a lot on my shot.”
