Rivers is unbelievably bad! 

Post#1 » by VolumeControl » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:41 am

I watched all Hornets games this season. I know hes rookie and he needs time to adjust but...
Hes combo guard who cant pass, shoot, protect the ball, play pnr, play defense,...
I was searching for sign of optimism but i didnt find it.
Is it just me or... ?
Sorry if my english is bad :)

He didn't look good at all in their last game.

He'll be fine. 1/4 of a season is not enough time to judge the kid.

His game is just very ugly to watch. Nice handles, but a terrible finisher at the rim, can't shoot from anywhere, and he's just not a good athlete. His name and high school hype got him drafted 10th overall.

In your opinion, what would it take from orlando to acquire Austin?

Mo Harkless would be a great trade-off. I can't understand why Orl starts Dequan Jones over him.

Because Harkless is a very raw talent. Right now he's a very poor offensive player and has little confidence on offense. He has exceptional athletic skills, just isn't a great ball player yet.

Even still, I don't think Orlando would trade him for Rivers, considering the kind of season Rivers is having.

He was drafted 10th because NO coach knows him personally...Never mix family/friends and business you end up with a bust of a draft pick. Looking back, I am so thankful that BC chose TRoss now :lol: still would have preferred Drummond though :oops: ...Hopefully for NO, he develops into a decent roll player in the upcoming years, and possibly wins a most improved player award :D

Saw him play in person on Friday against Atlanta and good lord he is TERRIBLE. Everyone sitting around me was just bashing him and talking about how terrible he is/was. It's a shame too because I watched him in person when he was a junior in high school and I was a fan.
