One and Done Players Who Should've Stayed in School

Austin Rivers was feeling himself after his first year at Duke, and we can't blame him. He went off a couple times and even beat North Carolina with a game-winning three. But he hasn't found an identity yet, and probably would've been having a better year if he stayed in school. In 23 minutes a game for the Hornets, Rivers is putting up six points a game. He doesn't know whether he's a point or a shooting guard. Meanwhile, Damian Lillard, a guy that stayed all four years, is the Rookie of the Year by a landslide.
