Will Austin Rivers Play for the Celtics?
Will Austin Rivers Play for the Celtics? Yesterday, Austin Rivers announced that he’s leaving Duke after one season to enter the NBA Draft, and Doc Rivers should avoid drafting Austin at all costs, at least according Andrew Bock over at Bleacher Report. “There are plenty of reasons not to go after the coach’s son: inexperience, size and the fact that the Celtics need a center more than a hybrid guard, so it’s really a no-brainer,” Bock writes.

I’ve been in the bullpen down there many a times in Boston to know this [fan] don’t have a clue what he’s talking about. …” We don’t have got no clue, either. Yeah, right. [NESN]
