May, 2009: Rivers showed why he is one of the top players in the Class of 2011 (Nike Memorial Day Classic). He was out of sync playing with Brandon Knight in the first couple of games, during which it seemed both players were trying to assert themselves as the alpha dog. Once everything settled down, Rivers began to dominate the opposition with his scoring and playmaking ability. When he started looking to set up his teammates, his unselfishness became contagious and the team got on a roll. He still settled for the 21-foot jumper, which he can make at times, too often without any passes when the defense sagged. He has a great in-between game -- as good as any prospect in the nation -- shooting floaters over the big guys. Rivers can get to the rim, draw contact and finish. He is impatient, at times, on defense and gambles, which gets him into foul trouble. He understands the game -- as you would expect from Doc Rivers' son -- loves to compete and is fearless in tight situations.
