Post#1 Rivers Haters Where Are You?
Fri Dec 14, 2012 10:15 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
"What can I say. We were lucky. I thought we would lose all the way. We didn't play well, but well enough to win." - Mavs coach Don Nelson after the same game.

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.

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.
