Austin Rivers Tools on John Wall

If you can make a No. 1 NBA draft pick look clueless on the court, you probably have a pretty bright future in basketball ahead of you.  We aren’t telling anyone anything they don’t already know, but Austin Rivers — Doc Rivers’ son — must be as good as they say.  Just ask John Wall, whose insane hops were of no use during Boost Mobile’s Elite 24 camp in California.  Check out the video of Austin Rivers crossing up and stripping John Wall, courtesy of The Big Lead:

It’s no wonder Rivers is considered the best player in the Class of 2011.  If you can make a player like Wall look silly on both sides of the court on consecutive plays, you’re headed for a big pay day.

He also put his incredible leaping ability on display when heading out of bounds following a steal. Check it out:

You have to figure John Calipari used one of his shady recruiting methods to land the superstar point guard (hello Worldwide Wes!) and it’s well worth it. With the loads of talent the Wildcats have on this team, a Final Four run should be in store. In fact, they’re currently my pick to win it all.
