And considering Blake was injured his rookie year, youre proving the Rubio argument.
Actually no. Rubio already played a rookie year, Blake's prices were reflective of his very 'fresh' rookie season. My point was that people who think prices of 'hot' players have peaked only a few weeks into a season don't know what they're talking about.
Hell, look at D Rose. His prices (despite having an epic entire year) did not take off until around after the all-star break his mvp season.
Rubios prices already have 'hype' factored in currently from his glimpses of greatness his first year. To top that, he would really have to add a strong offensive game to take him to the next price plateau, imo. Or the Wolves would just have have a great season record wise, which I can't see happening.
