For whatever reason, many people have been dogging on Austin Rivers ever since joining Duke. That could be because he is a pouter when he doesn't get his way, or possibly because he had semi-big shoes to fill, with Kyrie Irving playing on Duke last year.
Whatever the case may be, Rivers played pretty darn good in his freshman season.
Rivers is easily one of the best shooters in the draft. Put this kid in the stands and he would still make it. He is rather clutch at times too, and Tyler Zeller and North Carolina would know all about that.
Rivers did not average many assists for Duke, for the simple fact that he is not a point guard. He certainly could be one though, considering his ball-handling skills are rather good and he is also a great passer.
However, his true game is penetrating and knocking down shots.
Rivers could easily be an elite scorer in the NBA, which would eventually make him an All-Star. He is by far one of the best guards in the draft and will prove his worth at the next level.
