Damn. Well at least we can say he ended on a good note and got some experience. Maybe that broken thumb will help him work his left hand.

That means Eric Gordon has to work rest of season. LOL. I'll look forward to Rivers being one of our leaders next season that is if the coach lets him.

I don't think there is any "maybe" about it. He'll just get started earlier than originally planned. Say what you want about Austin Rivers, but it can't be denied that the young man has an almost unmatched work ethic.

i want the guy to succeed as much as anyone since he is a Hornet.
But, I hear that last statement you made over and over. However, when i watch him shoot free throws, i always wonder what exactly it is he works on. I mean, if your forte is beating guys off the dribble and penetrating, you better be able to shoot a least a decent % from the stripe.

I will give it to him though, he did show signs of the game slowing down for him a bit before the injury. Hope he comes back with a fire under him next season.

The thing abut working hard is if your practicing wrong, you become really good at doing somehting wrong.
