I agree Droopy. I have more faith in Miller compared to Aminu or Henry. All he has to do to start for this team long-term is hit open shots and play solid defense which he can do.
If Miller can drain the 3 and play defense, that is about all we need from the SF position. I would kill for a 3 who is automatic from 3 right now. It would open up the floor so nicely for Gordon and Rivers to create.
Wasn't he the #2 ranked player in high school? There is a chance he could be a star out of the gate right? It's not like it wasn't a deep draft or anything. He was in consideration for getting drafted higher I believe. I think he'll be better than waiters, who was what, drafted fourth?
Chris Paul was one of a kind. We knew he would be a star from day one, but it did take a couple of years to realize he was a superstar. Austin Rivers is not Chris Paul and we shouldn't expect him to be. It's Anthony Davis that we should expect to be the superstar.
If Austin Rivers turns into a 15/5 player at 45% shooting, then I'll be satisfied.

We don't need Miller to be like Peja from beyond the arc. Someone who can shoot 37% and defend well. Someone who can complement.
