The best ruby in the game!!!

Written by ariskaramouzis

Rex is one of the best rubies, he plays like a diamond for me an he is quite cheap... Getting him, will also give you Kemba Walker and Howard (Dynamic Duo) Kemba goes from an 81 overall emerald to an 84 overall sapphire and Howard goes from a 79 overall gold to an 80 overall emerald.

Bought for: Lots of MT

Strengths: All around GOD

  • Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim, even if there are 5 Yao Mings and 2 Dinos in there.
  • Outside scoring: He ain't missing. This 89 open shot 3 feels like 99. Very easy release, almost every wide open shot is a green.
  • Playmaking: He has a good ball control and he is pretty accurate with his off balance passes. He's also very quick!
  • Mid range: He is P-E-R-F-E-C-T from mid even off the dribble. He can also make some "Heavily contested" shots most of the time from mid and a bit more rarely from 3

Weaknesses: His defence...mostly

  • Rebounding: Not a great rebounder, but who cares, he's a SG
  • Dunking: According to his stats, he has a 90 driving dunk, right? Hell no! He never throws it down like last year. We'll talk about alley-oops later ;)
  • Animations: He has some really bad animations. He can finish near the rim, but he has no acrobatic lay ups. He'll make the lay up, but sometimes he WILL get blocked because of his bad animations. He also has some bad dribbling animations. Don't use hin at PG
  • He isn't a great defender, but he can stop some fastbreaks or lock somebody on the perimeter. He can't steal the ball. Remember: Rebounding is a part of defence

Recommended Strategy: Play 1on1. He's very fast and most defenders can't keep up with him. And the best strayegy for him is......... Play 5out with your PG take a pick from Rex and let him roll. While he's on the move, throw a lob. It's a guaranteed dunk. He always dunks alley-oops

Use if: You want an athletic shooting guard than can also hit the 3

Don't use if: You need a lockdown defender that can steal an block almost every guard

Bottom Line: JUST GET HIM HE'S THE BEST SG THAT YOU CAN GET RIGHT NOW AND PROBABLY UNTILL DECEMBER.

Please comment if have him and tell me how he plays and also tell me if that was a good review. If you don't have him, you can still comment and tell me if I convinced you to buy him. (I have 13K MT and I want to comlete a collection, tell me witch one) (I also need a big man)

Sorry if there are any mistakes on my review, I'm from Greece and I'm not a dictionary.
