Seriously. I wasn't even on this kid's hype train when he was in HS. I always knew he'd struggle in the league.

Lol, his mindset is more like He can be Kobe, role player, forget about it. N1gga's whole life is about be the man take the shots and tear it up.
Check his draft express:
Selfish, does not know how to play team, shot selection problem. all these are like Kobe monta Jennings traits, its ok can be good player still but then

+ PHYSICAL WEAKNESS what the hell, if you are a gunner you better be a freak of nature coz without it you are a terrible combination of a player traits.
Guess Doc's got it, rich good pay good role player marry a white chick, too bad Austin has to pay for the price, got mom's beauty and weak physic.

Yeah, he sucks. This isn't news. He's a scrub. Nobody would give half a shit about this bum if he wasn't Doc's son.

That is the reason I think he can, meaning if he takes it like Kobe does and works his ass off (and I imagine his dad could give him such advice too). I'm in no way predicting that Rivers will be good, I'm just saying there is still a chance.

I dun know man, he seems weak mentally and have bad body language. Do you think Kobe after miss a few throws will slap his hand and gash and shrinked. He was shooting around 70% now 56% its a mental block. Cannot shoot FT was not on his scouting report, its developed.

Why pay Gordon and draft Rivers? It just doesn't make sense.

He probably shouldn't have been a lottery pick, and most certainly not a top 10 pick. No idea why the Hornets were so high on him. Instead they got Antony Davis and arguably the worst rotation player in the league. Granted, he's a rookie so it's not all gloom-and-doom but, other than that 27 point game, he's been terrible.

He may be the worst player in the NBA right now. His PER is currently 5.8 (and declining) and his FG%, FT%, and Per 36 min numbers are absolutely terrible.

However, because he's only 20, I'll give him two more seasons to prove himself before classifying him as a bust.
