Rodriguez is playing for Spain in consecutive summers for the first time since 2006 and 2007, after the point guard served excellently as the reserve playmaker at the 2012 Olympics. Rodriguez was part of Real Madrid's triumphant return to the top of Spain this past season, winning the league for the first time since 2007 while helping the club to their first Euroleague final since 1995. Rodriguez still can score in bunches - with solid long range shooting and an ability to get to the basket - but he is also tremendous at getting teammates open shots. The Tenerife native is still an elite defender and makes it difficult for any opposing guard to function on offence. He knows what it takes to win and will accept whatever role he is given - and excel in it.
