Fernandez: The Next Spanish Star?

Based on what I saw from this kid during the Olympics, he does certainly look like the real deal.

We will see. But I think that Ricky Rubio will be the next Spanish superstar.

With Brandon Roy over him at the lineup Rudy is going to have to have a fast start to get minutes. Hope he gets it and makes a good season, think he can do it.

He has the tools, but I dont like the hype. If I was asked wich player would succeed before going to the NBA, I would choose Rudy before both Gasol and Calde.

I would chose him before Calde, but after Gasol ( his size is a big advantage, there aren't so many big men, while SGs is more easy IMO)

Rudy reminds me of a more offensively capable Vujacic. Their shots look identical and both are very intense, main difference is Rudy can dribble and Sasha cant.

I see Rudy being a 12 ppg type max in the NBA on a good team.
