Post#1 Rivers Haters Where Are You?
Fri Dec 14, 2012 11:15 pm by Bee-Fense

Tonight he had 27 points on 9/14 shooting from the field, 5/6 from 3, 4/4 from the line and tossed in a couple of assists.

Over his last 5 games he's averaging 14 points on 49% from the field and 51% from 3 with 2.4 assists (1.2 TO's) and 2.4 rebounds.

He's looked A LOT better and he's getting more and more comfortable. I think it's pretty safe to say he won't be a bust if you've been watching him. He won't ever be an all-star, but I think he can still end up being a 6th man scorer off the bench of a borderline starter for a good team.

No one ever hated him, they just acknowledged he was sucking for a period of time. That's not hate.

Two words.

1). Luke

2). Ridnour
Well, West said, both Thomas and Dumars could push the envelope offensively, "but Joe's defense sets him apart."

Yeah Ridnour is a bad defender but that's why I pointed out his last 5 games. He's been playing better prior to tonight.

Also, to say Rivers didn't have any haters is absurd. The guy had people saying he was the next Adam Morrison and/or he'd be out of the league in a few years.

lets be honest OP, Rivers has given plenty of reason for people to question him. he's looked much better as of late. kind of a ridiculous thread to be calling out people for the most part have been right about him. a couple of games doesnt change how aweful he's been for the most part.

Austin Rivers is a rotation player at best.

his last few games do look good, especially when compared to the rest of his year. maybe this is a breakout game for him.

I'm not a hater, but he has literally played awful all year. So to make this thread after 1 game is a little ridiculous

Hes terrible going left... But I'm happy with what I saw tonight from him, got me amped a bit. seems to be fitting nicely into the "spark" guy off the bench mold hopefully, combo guard behind Gordon and Vasquez/Whoever we get to replace Vasquez. Great insurance against gordon's injuries... I think he'll make it in this league.
Bow to the Brow.

To make a thread calling someone a bust a month into their career is equally ridiculous.

Rivers will develop into a Jamal Crawford type player ... lets not forget how bad Crawfords rookie season went .. and he was a higher draft pick.
