C.J. Watson Felt ‘Mistreated’ by Bulls
(C.J.) Watson went on to say he never considered re-signing with the Bulls after last season and that he wasn’t treated fairly in the wake of the Bulls Game 5 loss to the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs last season.
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.”
