In short Rivers case is different from Ben's. What holds Rivers back is lack of trust, combined with trying to do too much and an inconsistent jumpshot. What holds Ben back is his lack of actual basketball skills. It was always obvious for those, who didn't dislike Austin just because he is the son of Doc, that the moment he would develop a consistent jumpshot from 3 and could leave his confidence issues behind, his excellent handles and craftiness when getting to the basket would make him a valuable player. Austin Rivers can do so much more on a basketball court than Ben McLemore it isn't even funny. He is a 6'4 guard, who can play the PG position. For him it's now about consistency. For Ben it's still about finding some niche in the league and tragically so far it doesn't look like he will be able to find one.
