HoopsHype CJ Watson rumors

January 25, 2013 Updates

Nets guard C.J. Watson was warned by the NBA for flopping Thursday for a play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s win at Minnesota. The warning comes as no surprise after Watson all but admitted to flopping to draw an offensive foul on serial offender J.J. Barea with nine minutes to go in the fourth of what became a 91-83 Nets win. ”J.J. Barea’s a flopping guy, so I tried to give him a taste of his own medicine,” Watson told the YES Network in a postgame interview. “I hope I don’t get fined, though.” New York Post

C.J. Watson returned to the United Center on Saturday night and attempted to clarify a comment he made during the offseason about how current teammate Deron Williams is a better point guard than former teammate Derrick Rose. Or did he? "Actually, I didn't say that," Watson said. "I said, 'To me, he was the best point guard.' The guy asked me who was better. He said compare the two and I said you can't compare the two." Chicago Sun-Times

Watson, who was an 81-percent free-throw shooter, passed to Omer Asik, a 45-percent free-throw shooter, with seven seconds left. Asik was fouled and missed both free throws and the Bulls were later eliminated 79-78. "The season ended how it ended," he said. "I wasn't sorry about that. I knew I could do better. It was a critical mistake maybe at the time but I didn't think it was. I just thought I got mistreated but it is what it is." Chicago Sun-Times
