Very similar to Rondo's potential/career. Perhaps a bit lower.

All depends on how he develops his jump shot. If he spends his summers working on it with excellent coaches he will become one of the best PGs in the league without question. If he does not, then he will be limited to a certain degree but a very good PG.

Kidd 2.0 in the best case, and a non-athletic more flashy version of Rondo at worst.

this. Rubio's jumpers are horrific. At least he has great court presence

He is going to be an Andre Miller type of player: very good player for many years but will never be elite unless he fixes his shot.

He has already missed more games than Andre Miller has missed his entire career. Andre Miller is a super durable player. One of the most durable players in NBA history.

I said he is going to be an Andre Miller type of player and I explained the comparison. If out of that what you get is that Rubio is as durable as Dre then I don't know what to tell you.

Rubio's game does not rely on athleticism at all so his knee injury, while serious, should not keep him from having a long career.
