Though the Warriors drafted celebrated point guard Stephen Curry and acquired two point guards in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks, Watson is not deterred. Watson has earned the trust of the coaching staff, the respect of his teammates and the support of the fans. While the Warriors were beset with injuries last season, Watson proved to be a reliable backup, averaging 9.5 points and 2.7 assists in 24.5 minutes.And like Nelson, Watson is cool. From the American Chronicle:
His expression never changes. No matter when you see him or what the conversation is, Watson has that same wide-eyed, boyish look and innocent smile every time. Doesn't matter whether he's just knocked a tooth out of Joakim Noah's mouth or hit a game-winning 3-pointer. Or, for that matter, learned that his NBA team, the Golden State Warriors, drafted Davidson super guard Stephen Curry with the seventh overall pick in the draft. … "They can draft who they want to draft," said Watson, who started out with the Warriors in January of 2008 and played a whole season last year. "It doesn't matter, because it's all about competing and working hard."It’s unclear what will happen with the Watson situation. We’ll have more in the coming days.
