How many other high school kids can say they blew by the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft as if his hightops were stuck in wet cement?
Check out the above video of Rivers crossing up Washington Wizards No. 1 pick John Wall off the dribble on Wednesday in the opening day of Boost Mobile Elite 24 camp in Hawthorne, Calif. Then Rivers picks Wall clean at the other end of the court when the ex-Kentucky star attempts to return the favor with a crossover dribble of his own.
Granted Wall is only two years removed from the start of his senior year of high school, but it was still an impressive sequence from Rivers, the son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and the consensus top shooting guard in the Class of 2011. Many believe Rivers is likely to be Duke-bound, but he says he's also still considering Florida, North Carolina and Kansas.
As for Wall, he managed to show up the high school kids a few times as well.
In one pick-up game, Bucks guard Brandon Jennings spins the ball around his waist in transition, then flings it over his head to a speeding Wall, who flushed home a one-handed alley-oop slam. Wall also got some payback against Rivers with a nice head fake and driving floater of his own.
