Excerpts from an interview Friday with Jazz guard Earl Watson.Watson on Jeremy Evans' drawing of them, which became Watson's new Twitter photo: I asked Jeremy to draw a photo of him and me as toddlers. I didn't ask him to put a donut in my hand. [Laughs] I told him to put a cookie.Are they wearing diapers: Oh, yeah. We're in diapers. I told him to put a cookie in my hand. And he drew it with a donut and a big. But I wanted him to draw something with me throwing him the [alley-] oop. And I wanted to get it blown up and get it put up on the wall. We talk a lot about creating cartoons. I like to write and he likes to draw. He said, 'If you come up with the concept, I can draw it.' I was, like, cool. Let's work on it this summer. So that's the plan. I think on the bib it says something like, 'I'm cool' or something. So since he drew me with a donut, I said you've got to draw you with something on your ankles or something. The photo was really cool. [Watson turns to C.J. Miles — 'You seen it?'] He drew it on his iPad. Man, he's amazing.Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazz
