Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
Just because Westbrook played SG in college and was able to become an elite PG in the NBA doesn't mean everyone will.
Also Rivers isn't being asked to become the starting PG for his team immediately when he gets to the NBA like Westbrook was. Jarrett Jack will still be the starting PG and Greivis Vasquez will still be the backup PG. Rivers will be the backup SG unless New Orleans decides not to match Gordon, there's no point in Rivers needing to play PG.
