yea true but most of time players out of h.s. dont be sh*t or take awhile to develop to become a star player.

if you do a ratio of players out of h.s. top 10 pick or top 15 who actually became star players you will find that most of time their not worth drafting yet.
does everybody in the nba have to be a star?

You're trolling if you think Rivers has more pro potential than any of those guys. If we're talking strictly potential, Q. Miller and T. Jones sh*t all over him.

You're trolling if you think a GM would take captain inconsistent Jones over Rivers, and im not even sure why you mentioned Royce i like him but he prob wont go top 15

What do you see T.Jones ceiling as? I think Rivers ceiling is Arenas, if he maxed out on his potential.. I don't think Jones' ceiling is that high IMO. I use too but I just don't see it.

Dude aint gonna be sh*t in the league unless he develops some playmaking skills and become a combo guard like rose, westbrook, monta, etc.....

He's a 6'3 shooting guard and dudes like that end up not being much of anything in the league but 6th men.

With a father who is an NBA coach, talent evaluator and former player it's hard for me to sit here and say he is dumb for this decision. I think he should go but I'm not sure staying in college would have gotten him any better than he's going to be. I give him 3-4 years.


The best thing about it is he knows the nba system and he will hang around the league as long as he wants to just because he has a little talent and his dad has a job there. Look at Lucas III, Coby Karl, Luke Walton and others.

combo gaurds typically play the two and one.. 2 of the examples you mentioned only played 1 position.

he is a student at Duke University. Do y'all know how many people would who dream about attending that school? He comes from a rich family = there is no reason for him to jump into the league after 1 year especially when its clearly evident that he has much room for improvement. Hell Kyrie Erving was more prepared then him to make the jump to the league smh
freaking idiot move

Celtics don't need to move up to get him, lol the way they're playing they might get in the lottery! hah but nah they say he is the #15 prospect. I'm a little surprised, but not all the way. I thought his dad would want him to stay....but I guess he don't want to

I never understood the argument that "his family is rich therefor he should stay"

Not every man aspire's to live off their family's earning. He's always dreamed about playing in the league, he wants to earn his OWN money. And not ask daddy for hand outs. College will always be there, because as you said, "his family is rich" so he'll always have money for tuition.. The NBA is not garunteed for no man if you return a second year.

you right not every player has to be a star. weak teams usually get the top 5-10 picks. they drafting players who they feel have potential to turn their franchise around to become good and built off of to become contenders later. So when draft a player off potential and he becomes not what you expected that sets your franchise back. Some teams can't get stars to come to their team so they have to draft potential stars.

That's ya team and don't know how to spell ya mans last name?

lol but nah Kyrie was NBA ready in High School, so him and Rivers can't be compared. Rivers became a better all around player from his one year in college.
