Austin Rivers, widely regarded as the best player in the Class of 2011 (and the son of Boston Celtics coach Rivers) provided the internet with a sure-to-go-viral moment recently at a basketball camp in California. Rivers crossed the shit out of the NBA’s reigning No. 1 draft pick, John Wall, and scored a layup. On the ensuing defensive series, Wall tried to cross up Rivers as payback … but Rivers stripped him cleanly. Reminds us of the time Wall baptized Jerry Stackhouse. Rivers will decide between Duke, Florida, Kansas & North Carolina. [The Rookie Wall, H/T Adam]
