Do you know how good 80% (actually, 100%) of NBA point guards would look against high schoolers right now?

Rivers is a good prospect but put the gun down, buddy

The kid is still in highschool. Do you realize that every single decent player could have a highlight real to make them look amazing, how about you watch some actual games before you go nuts talkin like this? I know Austin Rivers is a great player and he'll be special one day but really, if you put this kid in the nba now he would have a rough time. You need to calm down and lay off youtube.

I don't think he is that special of a prospect...he is an undersieed 2 guard with a streaky jumpshot and decent athletism...I don't see the big deal tbh.

If Im gonna get excited about a prospect he better have some dominant potential like

Andre Drummond or Andrew Wiggins

Some posters here don't follow high school basketball. Let me fill you in, Austin Rivers is one of the top offensive talents to come out within the last few years.

His offensive game is complete and borderline NBA level already.

I'm no pro scout but there must be a reason why he's the number one prospect...

Hopefully he's a one and done at duke so we can see how he matches up to real competition

Wasn't even #1 in his class.

Besides Rivers has much ego as LeBron and as much confidence as Kobe. He is the son of Doc Rivers, so his head has to be screwed on right.

I don't follow HS basketball, at all. I'm guessing ton's of HS prospects flame out once they hit College tho. Little early for this type of thread.

Could this kid actually make the leap from HS to the NBA if there was no rule in place?

He also isnt projected to go close to #1 in his draft class.

Andre Drummond can start in the league right now, but since he isnt a guard no one mentions him.

Brandon Jennings was very good in high school, look how he is now.

He's a good player, but don't get too hyped over a HS highlight video. I've seen quite a few HS highlight videos that made guys look like the next MJ.
