2012 NBA Draft: Hornets Fans React To 1st Round Selections

Holding the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Hornets and their fans were looking forward to Thursday's draft. While the organization and their fans were likely ecstatic to add Anthony Davis with the first overall selection, the reaction to New Orleans' No. 10 selection of Austin Rivers was less enthusiastic.

Over at SB Nation's Hornets blog At The Hive, site editor Rohan hasn't been Rivers' biggest cheerleader. Judging by the comments following the pick, it appears the community members agree with him. Damn it all to hell!

I really don't want Rivers
