“I always thought Deron was the best point guard in the league,” Watson said yesterday during his introductory press conference at the Nets’ practice facility. “When everyone asks me who is the toughest point guard, I always say him.
“Between him and D-Rose, it’s pick your poison.”
“They went out of their way to try and sway me, and no one else really did that,” Watson said. “I think that was really the deciding factor.
“When they called and I thought about it and saw, with them getting Joe Johnson, I think that was the main factor in me deciding to come here.” – nypost
