John Wall on Austin Rivers: “I think it’s going to be fun and interesting. Austin is someone who I’ve always watched since high school. He’s a competitive guy. He definitely can score the ball. High volume shooter, once he gets it going, he’s going. I think it just gives us that guy that we’ve never really had off the bench, that can create for himself and can create for his teammates at the two-guard position.”
The perception of nepotism dogged Austin Rivers even as he progressed into a capable professional. “People either loved it or people either hated it. It was one or the other,” Rivers said, chuckling at the memory. “But it was something I’ll never forget. I don’t think obviously he will. When I get older, I’ll probably reflect on it. … I’ll be like, ‘Man, I can’t believe that even happened.’ But with that came a lot of stuff.”
