Austin Rivers Says He’s ‘Better Than A Lot of Those Dudes’ in Team USA Showcase

by August 14, 2015

Following Team USA’s dunkfest showcase in Las Vegas, Austin Rivers is talking a mean game on twitter.

To fill out the rosters, USA Basketball had to call up players like Terrence Jones, Arron Afflalo and Amir Johnson.

Clearly, Rivers thinks he was deserving of at least an invite.

The “Man on a Mission” made it clear, however, that he was not throwing shade at any player in particular; instead, it’s just his competitive mindset talking.

While winning Most Improved Player next season would be a near miracle given the Clippers’ stacked roster, Rivers at least got one thing right. Talk is cheap—he’s got to show and prove.
