Doc Rivers’ son Austin continues to make a very big name for himself on the high school basketball circuit. Yesterday, he was named his team’s MVP at the Boost Mobile Elite 24 classic, a high school All-Star game for some of the top players the nation has to offer. (ESPN Rise)
Despite injuring his wrist, Rivers wowed the crowd of more than 1,000 spectators with various crossovers, a smooth jumper and the ability to blow by defenders. When he returned to the game after being treated with ice, he continued to score using his left hand including a sweet spin move and layup.
“Austin Rivers, he just comes out and dominates every time,” said Jahii Carson of Mesa (Phoenix, Az.), who added several crowd-pleasing dunks of his own. “He’s got NBA speed and NBA moves already … I think he’s the best player in our class.”
Jahii Carson wasn’t lying when he said Austin has NBA speed and NBA moves already. The kid can play. And when you’re that good, I guess nobody can give you crap for playing a game in long sleeves.
