One of the most colorful members of the Chicago Bulls “Bench Mob” is C.J. Watson. He’s also one of the most colorful and well-known NBA players on Twitter; as his nearly 340,000 followers attests to.
“C.J. knows a lot. He knows a lot of famous people around here. So watch that guy,” Derrick Rose said jokingly after practice.
Pretty solid praise when you consider it comes from the newly crowned MVP.
Rose was asked how come Watson has more followers than he does?
“That’s what I’m saying, watch C.J. he knows a lot of people,” Rose responded.
Of course that was an inaccurate question as Rose doesn’t even have a Twitter account. There is a Derrick Rose on twitter, in San Diego who describes himself as:
Realtor, former Domestic Violence & Substance Abuse Counselor for jail system, Average everyday Joe, concerned citizen……oh and a MacBook Pro user”
Obviously, that’s not the Derrick Rose. but Watson got his attention for this tweet on April 29th:
Congrats to drose on winning the MVP
