He went out a loser. Should stay at least one more year to refine his skills.. He's not god enough to play great every night in the NBA. If a team takes him with a lottery pick, I feel sorry for them cause they will not be getting good value.. I believe he is way over-rated because of who his dad is.. he needs more polish. IMO

Rivers is better off the dribble than Curry, but he's not even HALF the shooter that Curry is.  Rivers will be lucky to ever put up more than 12 ppg in a season in the NBA
