Henson, Jones, Sullinger, Plumlee and Green are all players I would of taken over Rivers. You can make a case for a few others as well.
The only person crazy enough to think Rivers is a pg is Monty.
It's interesting, that draft you had AD, Lillard, Drummond, Draymond Green, Waiters, Ross, and a bunch of also-rans.
Man looking at that draft what happened to Fab Melo, dude was supposed to be a top prospect at Syracuse.
