Austin Rivers Will Be Nicer Than The Doc
At 6’4 and 190 pounds, Doc’s son is widely considered as the best lead guard in the nation. He has had a meteoric rise to the top of this years class, and it likely he will attend Duke next season. Austin has an endless arsenal of pull-up off the dribble moves going either way, superior handles and deep 3pt range.
He can play 1 or 2, has a tremendous basketball IQ and goes to the basket hard, intending to dunk on defenders. His mid-range game is nice, and he has an array of floaters and runners that are very effective.
He dropped 42 on Brandon Knight and 45 on St.Benedicts Prep last season as a junior at Winter Park(Fla.) High School. The kid is a BEAST.
