I personally think Rivers has better upside than Lamb. I also think Gibbs is a better shooter.
Not to mention that I think the rankings are based on how they will do and what they will contribute this year, not as NBA players....I think it would be hard to say Rivers has a higher upside than Lamb right now. As aceboon alluded to, Rivers seems to have less room for improvement. He might be the most well rounded offensive player to come out of high school in quite some time, but I don't see him getting a lot better. That's not to say that he won't beone of the best players in the nation next year, but as far as NBA stock is concerned, I think Lamb's is a bit higher.
Rivers has a better upside, but hasn't played a single minute.
People who don't know the game just like to conclude "PLAYER A IS YOUNGER THAN PLAYER B SO THEREFORE HE MUST HAVE MORE UPSIDE"By what measure does Rivers have better upside? He's undersized for the position, not particularly explosive, and plays with one hand. I think he's going to be a pretty effective scorer in college, but where does the upside come from? Lamb is all upside. The kid's not even scratching the surface of what he can be.
