In high school, Rivers was named Mr. Florida Basketball, won the 2011 Naismith Prep Player of the Year Award and was an All-American.
He committed to Duke, where he stayed just one year before choosing to enter the NBA draft. During his one year at Duke, he averaged 15.5 points per game while playing roughly 33 minutes per contest.
Now just 10 games into his NBA career, Rivers is showing some signs of growing pains as he acclimates himself to the pro game.
This isn't out of the ordinary at all, and it's no reason to panic.
Rivers simply needs some time to develop, and as long as he doesn't let the pressure get to him, he will grow into a great scorer in the NBA.
