The 20 Most-Hated Duke Players of All Time

20. Austin Rivers

Years Played: 2011-12
NCAA Accomplishments: Averaged 15.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists during his only season at Duke
NBA Career: Averaging 6.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists during his first season in the league

Most Duke players have to actually put on their Blue Devils jerseys in order to piss off opposing fans. Not Rivers. Months before he played his first game for Coach K, Doc Rivers' son sent out a tweet that made opposing fans cringe. "Wearing number 0 next year!" he wrote. "My nickname is going to be subzero! Cause of number and because my moves freeze people, got ice in my veins!!" Ugh. And, it only got worse from there. Once the season started, people grew to hate him even more because of the cocky way that he carried himself on the court.
