Rivers became one of my favorite rockets last year and gives 110%
I think what's gotten lost in the free agency frenzy/Jimmy Butler consternation is that once the Rockets got healthy, purged the roster of last summer's mistakes, and atoned in the buy-out market, they were the best team in the league.
Top 2 in offense, Top 2 in defense, Number 1 in net rating, and best record post All-Star break.
Austin Rivers played a significant role in that.
Glad to have him back, especially when he likely could have sought more money elsewhere.
