Rivers has been a bust since he first stepped on yhe floor and shows very little signs of improvement. While Roberts has been pretty awful, at least he's shown that he CAN hang in the NBA. Rivers can't, period.

Rivers has spurts of being halfway decent and some bonehead plays. He was ranked ahead of AD in the class of 2012 for a reason.....Doc is his dad, he had it harder than other kids growing up, and he can play. Last season he should have been sent to D-league to adjust step by step to NBA speed. Houston done this with Terrence Jones rather than let him sit. Withey should be there now by the way...to adjust. I would play Rivers over Roberts, in the end he will be a better player. He gives 100% effort whether it is making a play or screwing up. Enough for me.
