Why can't we just forget about Rubio and keep Nate...rebuddle.

Nate Robinson is a freak of nature.  He sells tickets, theres no question about that.  He comes into the game and flies around the court like a madman and burns up his adrenaline very quickly.  His energy can flow throughout the whole entire team, but in the end, he just makes more stupid plays then smart ones.  If you want to be entertained, keep Nate.  He will score on occasion and will make spectacular plays, but that is not what the knicks need right now.  We need someone that is willing to run and cooperate and make smart plays that benefit the team, not just his own marketability, stats, and wallet (NATE).  I am probably one of the biggest Nate-the-great fans out there, but I would trade him for Rubio any day.  So Rubios not proven, but Nate is a proven headache and has more downside then upside.  This is partially D'Antoni's fault, since he cant control Nate.  You would never see Nate on the Spurs making stupid plays in front of Greg Popovich.  You know why?  Because the Spurs have leaders.  Nate Robinson is not that leader....but Ricky Rubio can be.
