Stay at Duke you said? haha good one. This is only the beginning. This kid will be a top 10 shooting guard soon.

Imagine Austin with rondo passing to him. Potentially amazing duo.

this is professional basketball. a 20 year old kid didnt just fluke almost 30 points against established and more experienced pros.

For a player that has shot 20% from the field for a month or so, this is an improvement.

Nah, I think he can continue a level of play a bit lower than this. I think he can be top 10 sg in the league.

he's still having major problems getting to the basket against NBA size. when he shoots 85% from the three like this then he's gonna have a good game, but I don't know if he can put up 5/6 threes every night.

He's got years ahead of him but I wouldn't put too much pressure on him, he's either going to be a solid bench scorer like Jordan Crawford or a superstar eventually.
Danny Ainge tried to get CP3 & David West to add to KG, Pierce and Ray Allen. Just Imagine if the stars had aligned...

Austin Rivers has fairly horrible so far. One of the worst players in the league.

Not even one of the worst players in the league playing regular minutes. One of the worst period. Most teams have useful players in the 13th-15th man slots than Rivers.

Not much reason for optimism. I expect this is the way it'll be for the rest of the season. Next year will tell more. About whether he is able to adapt or not.

One game is one game. Unless you think Greg Smith is also going to be a top 10 PF in the league based on the way he torched us last night - 8-9 FG, 20 points, 6 rebounds in 22 minutes.

Be fair to Greg. He also torched the Lakers.  ;D

I've seen dyslectic 3-year-olds be more successful at spelling bees than the Lakers are at basketball right now :p

Haha, TP for the laugh.  In that case, I forgive him... sort of.

Wouldnt really call it a fluke, the kid has scoring potential and he can only really get better from here. Has he played great in the first 20 or so games.... no, but he hasnt been horrendous. His TO's have gone down quite a bit, but i think thats more of a case that they dont really run the offence through him anymore. I could see him averaging 10-12 points in his rookie year which is good considering he is still only what 20??
