And the most staggering thing is he's averaging 24mpg.

The guy is utter trash.

When he enters the game, the other team's fans cheer.

This is what the D-League is for. Rivers shouldn't be playing the NBA game right away. He could potentially become a pretty good player, but right now he has no business playing full NBA speed against full NBA talent. He needs to be learning the NBA game against comparable talent.

Damn. All in 24 MPG. Absolutely shocking.

He never seemed to be THAT bad to me watching him in HS and at Duke.

Like I said before the draft, it was a terrible pick. He was barely late first round material for me but even I didn't think he would actually turn out this bad. I kind of feel bad for him now. It's the fault of other people as much as it is his for making him believe he was a much better player than he is. He really was not ready for the pros. His name may have gotten him into the NBA as a lottery pick but because of that being the reason he's going to look really bad when he doesn't perform.

He's only averaging 2 FT's a game. It's tough to get into a rhythm when you only shoot two.

Also, he's the worst player ever

I think they secretly don't want to ruin his confidence cause if he gets sent down he will still play like a scrub even in the d-league and his confidence will be gone forever.

If he was on the Knicks he would be leading the poll for "Which player should replace Rondo in the all-star game" on NBA.com.

Stop baiting Knicks fans and check your messages
