I keep seeing that Austin Rivers has been such a disappointment as a rookie. I also see numerous people saying that he was a reach as the 10th overall pick, that he was a project that maybe they would have considered at the end of the first or beginning of the second. This baffles me.
If he is a disappointment so far, then what do you call all the guys behind him that can't even get off the bench. Who drafted after Rivers is having a better start to his career? Who were these can't miss, NBA ready players that we passed up when we "reached" for Austin Rivers.
Seriously, take a look at picks 11-30 and how they are performing early in their career. I want to know if you could go back in time and select the 10th pick over again, who would you take?
