Austin Rivers: “I want to destroy LeBron”

Austin rivers

Doc's son Austin is one of.. if not the… top High School ballers in America.  To be one of the top ballers, you gotta have the skills, and the attitude.  You know.. the kind of attitude that makes guys say this.

“Well, I’ve met Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen—you name it. A lot of people ask me who I’ve met through my dad, and they’re in awe when they hear the names of the players, but I’ve never looked at it like that. It’s cool meeting all of them, but I really want to be in their situation one day. I don’t want to just meet LeBron, I want to destroy him on the court one day.”

Gotta love that kid… even though he's going to Duke. 

Can't all be perfect, I guess.
