Not saying that he'll come in and set the world on fire but a lot of people had similar reservations about Steph Curry. Jus' sayin'.
Curry was great off the ball, using his teammates screens to score, and showed he was a very good passer in college as well. I havent seen any of that from Rivers. And Curry is a much better jumpshooter than Rivers as well, and I dont see Rivers ever becoming as good on screen roll as Curry. I just dont like how much Rivers holds the ball and his lack of creation off the dribble for his teammates.
