Agree. I wasn't on the Rivers team predraft, but there really weren't any other alternatives at 10.

He's been bad but he's shown some signs recently. Still way too early to write him off.

IMO rivers biggest struggle is not being aggressive enough, and that will come with time


And the fact that he can't make a layup

I also wanted Sullinger. However, the value and upside pick was with Rivers. It was the right decision... he's just not ready yet.

Sullinger would be as useless as tits on a boar on this roster.

Davis already alters more shots than anyone in the league not named Howard or Ibaka. Kid is going to be a superstar

Never seen so many blocked shots at the perimeter from a big. He's already put on noticeably more muscle so at least that isn't a lost cause as well

And this was supposed to be a deep draft. MKG and Beal have both been disappointments too. AD and Lillard are the only decent players in this class.

Wait what? MKG fills up the stats sheet. He has a well rounded game and playing pretty well. Beal has been up and down... but most rookies are.

MKG is averaging 11/6 with 2 AST, 1 BLK, 1 STL while shooting 50% from the field. That's pretty damn good for a 19 year old.

It's also too early to judge any of the rookies, not just Rivers

10 point per game is hardly filling out the stat sheet. For the number 2 pick I expect a lot more than 10/game and an 18 game loosing streak. If he was that good, the team would be a lot better. If anything, they are playing worse than last year.

2 AST

Kobe would be proud of those numbers but few others.

re: Guys drafted after Rivers


He takes 8 shots a game on a terrible Bobcats squad. He's doing his part. The Bobcats have no center, no consistency at SG, nor a legitimate PF. What are you expecting his numbers to be? You even know what filling out a stat sheet means? Just because the team sucks, doesn't mean all the players do.

No one is saying MKG is the second coming of Jordan. Hell, no one has seen he's even good. But to say only 2 players have been even decent in this draft class, shows you have no clue what you are even talking about.

You should probably stick to a more simple sport. Bowling isn't that hard to understand.

Lebron fills out a stat sheet. Magic Johnson filled out a stat sheet. Oscar Robertson filled out a stat sheet. 10/6/2 does not equal 25/8/5.
