always said he shoulda stayed in college
and he shoulda stayed. one big shot over North Carolina (and your pop's) name) dont mean that you're automatically going to be a good player.

His speed & 1st step were always too slow in my opinion. Some of us dumped on all his inabilities last year in a few threads & spoke that this would happen...tho you want to see all brothers prosper, he is/was very over-rated & shouldve stayed in college at least another year.

He was getting exposed last year at the college level during winter & latter part of season...too many people live & die by the hype machine. His jumpshot needs a lot of work & really just his overall game. His biggest problem is his (lack-of) speed & or dexterity.

Yeah, cause the NBA is High School Ball. He sucks. Bust.

Skip Bayless was sucking him off on draft day, why not anymore?
Chill it's his first year. He should of never went to Duke or left after year 1.

-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?


The Hornets REACHED when they drafted him, too. Horrible pick when you have Eric Gordon. Rivers couldn't even play point in college, so why the fu*k would u think he can in the NBA

n*gga never should have 1: went to duke and 2: came out after just one year... he'll be fine but it will take a few years...1st thing first he is NOT a PG and prolly never will be and he's worse than Steve Nash on d...

Rivers needs to just devote himself to becoming a defender he has the athleticsm to be a beast on defense but all he did in HS was score... Which he did show at Duke...

Being that I'm from New Orleans and have watched almost all the Hornets game this season.....Rivers will be fine.


Granted he has struggled this season, but a rookie averaging 7 ppg isn't horrible. Once he starts making those floaters and wide open 3's he's been given....he'll flourish. I honestly predict by his 3rd season he'll be a 15ppg, 7 asg kind of player

Circa what...high school? He has remedial speed.




Few will ever understand rankings & being a 'prospect' should be taking as a grain of salt. There are so many things like Work Ethic for example that should be held at higher value.

his first step has never been in question no one in college game could stay in front of him he got into the lane at WILL he just couldn't finish worth sh*t and was dominant only on one side. His first step though is there, if you ever watched him its very evident and im a UNC fan i hate the son of a bi*ch.
