Chris Sheridan, the Editor-in-Chief of the site you are reading right now (and no, he is not editing any of this), joined 1070-The Fan in Indianapolis on Thursday to discuss all things Indiana Pacers. While discussing the point guard situation in Indiana, Sheridan was quite blunt when the name C.J. Watson – the team’s newest backup point guard – was brought up. Here is what he had to say:
