Austin Rivers is earning some adoration from Knicks fans, though that may not extend to the homefront.
The guard posted a hilarious video on Instagram of him explaining to his girlfriend, Audreyana Michelle, that he was going to work out at the Knicks facility Tuesday on the team’s day off after returning from a week-long road trip.
“She mad I wanna go hoop on my day off… and we (squad) just got back from long road trip. lol and yes this is real,” Rivers said in his first caption on the Instagram story.
“Can I have one day to myself?” Michelle is heard asking in the background. “Do you want to spend the f–king day with me?”
WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Rivers, who signed a three-year, $10 million deal this offseason, is off to an impressive start with the Knicks. After missing training camp and the first four games with a groin injury, Rivers is averaging 10 points per game in three contests despite a lack practice time under Tom Thibodeau.
Rivers was on the floor in the closing minutes of back-to-back wins over the Pacers and Hawks, making clutch 3-pointers to help seal both victories.
Rivers ended the video with a shot of the Knicks practice facility with the caption, “I pulled up .. She hot right now” with a laughing emoji.
Rivers and Michelle have been dating since early 2020 and are expecting a child together.
