Don’t look, now, but Austin Rivers is now an NBA veteran. Finally, he has shed the “daddy’s boy” image, and has become a quality role player. Currently, Rivers plays for the Denver Nuggets, joining them via free agency, this past summer.
Austin Rivers has proven to be a tough and scrappy player. As a member of the LA Clippers, he was a part of some of their wild playoff battles. He was there when the Clippers had their first round playoff collapses against the Trail Blazers and Jazz.
Last night, Austin Rivers sparked a Nuggets’ rally, playing in OKC, vs the Thunder. When he hit a crucial three-pointer, some Thunder fans got upset. Known for heckling players, the fans began going at Rivers, who pointed them out to the refs, and got them removed from the game.
