Say what will about Austin Rivers. He earned his place in the NBA. He started his career averaging 6.2 points and has only improved since. Last season, he averaged 15.1 points. You can't luck your way to 15.1 points per game—no matter who your dad is. Rivers is a good NBA player.

Rivers might be improving as a player, but that's only because he was given opportunities he never deserved. Rivers' existence in the NBA is only due to nepotism and he wouldn't be in the league if it wasn't for his dad.
