CHICAGO — There will be some divided family loyalties if several pre-NBA draft scenarios play out and the 76ers grab Duke guard Austin Rivers. Some mock drafts have the Sixers taking the 6-4 shooting guard with their No. 15 selection in the June 28 draft. That would set up several intriguing in-season Atlantic Division clashes with Rivers' father, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers. Father-son dynamics remain positive and Austin Rivers says his dad is a big backer. Still, the younger Rivers also has a well-honed competitive streak and can't wait to play and beat Doc Rivers no matter where he lands.

The committee that selects the teams for the NCAA tournament obviously has a sense of history, because they sent Kentucky and Duke, the combatants in the epic East Regional final 20 years ago at the Spectrum, to the same region again, the South. This time it's the Wildcats who are the No. 1 seed and the favorite to win the whole tournament. Kentucky has a player of the year candidate in Anthony Davis and players like Terrence Jones and Darius Miller who were on its Final Four team of a year ago. The No. 2-seeded Blue Devils played the nation's second-toughest schedule during the year and have one of the best freshmen in the nation in Austin Rivers.

STATING definitively whom the 76ers will select with the 15th pick in the first round of Thursday's draft is an exercise in fallacy. There are just so many factors that could come into play when it is time for the selection that predicting who it will be is pure speculation. Does the potential loss of Lou Williams to free agency increase the need for a scorer at the guard position (Austin Rivers)? Is another athletic wingman an area the team will explore yet again? Or will the Sixers stay the course that they seem to have paved for this draft and go with a big, athletic inside player who preferably can rebound, block shots and score?
