Austin Rivers Talks New Orleans Hornets and More


VIBE caught up with Austin Rivers to discuss the New Orleans Hornets, his favorite song, and playing alongside Anthony Davis.

A one-year wonder in college, he led his Blue Devils squad to a no. 2 seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, where they were stunned by no. 15 Lehigh in the first round.
