During Sunday night’s Rockets win over the Jazz in Utah, Chris Paul’s brother, C.J., was ejected and then quickly un-ejected. C.J. threw the guy next to him under the bus.
Via USA Today Sports:
“The guy next to me called (referee James Williams) a (expletive), but they thought it was me,” C.J., who played collegiately at Hampton University and University of South Carolina-Upstate, told USA TODAY Sports. “The thing is, I know James. He reffed me in college. But (the security guard) comes up to me, and says ‘Hey, we need to talk to you in the back.’ I said, ‘for what?’ I told them what happened. I don’t talk like that.”
Asked about the incident after the game, Chris was unsure of the specifics.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I saw them trying to pull my brother out. That’s out. That’s out. … Might not be many playoff games I’ve played in, but he’s been at all of them. That’s out. Don’t put him out.”

Is this the brother from the State Farm commercials? Luckily Chris Paul was on the bench at the time of the ejection and was able to step in and save the day.
