He's not having HIS worst season ever. He's having THE worst season ever, regardless of player. Him being a rookie has nothing to do with it.
I could see if this n*gga had been in the league 3-4 years, but we talkin abt a damn rookie who everybody knew wasn't ready for the league and would take time to develop

Rookie or not, he was a lottery pick. And going just by raw numbers and whatever this guy uses to get his ratings, he's having the worst season of all time. It is what it is.

I don't think it's a knock on the player as much as it's just a knock on the season he's having.

-Austin Rivers was the #1 player outta HS, Anthony Davis was projected to be the #1 college player (he's a center) - the knock on Rivers was that he could dominate HS as a 6'3 SG, but he was gonna have trouble in the L

-Josh McRoberts also WAS the #1 HS player, but he was a 6'6 white center. Obviously he wasnt expected to be a #1 pick.

Rivers needs to be in a sixth man role. They can't keep playin him minutes at the point. And he's obviously not gonna start at SG when/if Eric Gordon gets back. Rivers should ideally be a combo-guard sixth man on that team.

But it's crappy GM-ing in NO to draft a guy #10 who has a similar skill-set and plays the same position as your best player from the previous year. Maybe they thought they could trade him?

Anthony Davis was the #1 player coming out of high school according to ESPN.com, Scout.com, and RSCI.com.

Now shut up, bi*ch.

he needs to bulk up

if he wants to be successful he needs to be like monta ellis

Says he needs to bulk up, then says he needs to be like a player who has no bulk

Bulk is the answer for everything on BX i swear

He cant go left and cant blow past people on this level. Bulk wont do sh*t but make him worse. Just needs to polish his game and/or develop a reliable jumper and hes good.

I see people in here talking about how players like Rivers, Davis, McRoberts, etc were the #1 High School players in the nation. What the hell does that have to do with the NBA though?

i meant in terms of his role

he's a 6'4 shooting guard like ellis. idk why they would put him on point when it's obvious he has a shoot first mentality. not only that, he can't make plays for his teammates

Both those links are recruiting. He was the #1 recruit. Not the #1 player. There's a difference. JJ Redd!ck was the best college player in the country one year, that didn't make him the #1 pick in the draft.

What are you even talking about? Tell me the difference between the #1 recruit vs. the #1 player.

Austin will be fine when he stops playing 'hero ball' and learns to trust his team mates. Also he needs to start dunking when he drives because those around the rim shots are not falling.
