Got to be totally honest, I still want Rivers to this very day, just because his ceiling is so damn high. His game says NBA-ready, but his mentality says one more year. Had he stayed at Duke for maybe another year or two, he could be one of the better contributors in the league right away. He has really good basic skills, and a good general understanding for the game. Although, nowhere near Ross defensively.
Also, I was a big Gilchrist fan, and he's having a fine year on a Charlotte team that's definitely improving. Went from worst team in NBA history, to trying to grab a playoff spot after one year of a rebuild.
Something that bothers me about Ross: he has been to the free throw line less than...Quincy Acy. That's pretty bad. Small sample size no doubt, but that was what Hollinger was complaining about when he said that he felt that we was a mid-low 1st round pick.
Because Ross is not utilized to penetrate obviously... Thats like blaming Jose for his lack of FTs...
