He should stay in college another year. It's not like he needs the money.

He may have been coachable later if he had grown up some.. But for Duke, Rivers going pro is the best thing they could hope for.

Name one Pg besides Kyrie that has thrived in the NBA from Duke ? His best bet is to probably leave and let somebody teach him how to be a real Pg , cause Coach K cant.
He's not a pg tho

When discussing college grads and not making money or getting good jobs you have to remove Duke from the normal conversation. Their grads go on to pretty good jobs if they want them, get to work until they are old and gray making minimum six figures a year. 30 years of that is a lot of money in the end.

Unless you are the best of the best in the NBA with endorsement deals added in the chances of you making more than them in your limited time playing are slim.
get the fu*k outta here, retired people dont make millions of dollars a year.

i don't get the hate for dukeys in the NBA, the best rookie in the league is for duke, one of the best role players in basketball is on the best team in basketball , grant hill is a starer in his 17th season with the suns

Duke arguably the most/ better players in the L currently. I don't think that's by chance. 95% of NBA guys are rotation players.

lol @ all the hate this guy is getting......i'm sure he'll be solid right from the gate in the league. EVERYONE can't be kobe/dwade .......

the 2 guard is one of the most dense positions. After Kobe/Dwade, there is a huuuuuge gap.....he'll be fine....


he reminds me of a slower monta ellis with a better jump shot...rivers is deceptively quick and athletic and his range extends well past the nba line . He has crazy handle, can get his shot off against ANYBODY. Has a knack for the rim. Can finish with contact and has all the intangibles His draft stock will move up after workouts GUARANTEED. his game is more fast paced and 1on1....it didn't fit into duke's system...i'm suprised that we have soooo many nba gurus in here yet you guys can't read offenses or tell when a player doesn't fit.


I dunno man..i think you guys are wrong about this one.....austin will do work in the league after he slows down and let the game come to him.

His style doesnt fit dukes,they like to pass the ball 85% of the time. He likes to create/penetrate and score off that

I think he will be one of those players you don't hear from a whole lot but every now and then he'll explode for 40 points.
