“I don’t know, but the fans, sometimes they gotta chill out,” Barton said. “It seems like especially with him, with Westbrook, it’s like them knowing he’s going to react a little bit or might say something. Now I feel like every time he goes on the road, they’re like picking at him. I don’t know what the league can do, but some of those fans are out of control, they’re saying anything, and they think we won’t say anything back or do anything but at the end of the day, we’re still humans too.”
Nuggets coach Michael Malone could only throw his hands in frustration after Jamal Murray dribbled into traffic and lost one of their 16 turnovers. Will Barton was the biggest culprit with four miscues on the night, followed by three more from Gary Harris. “They kicked our ass,” Malone said. “Turnovers, threw the ball all over the gym, 27 points off turnovers, 62 in our paint, 19 on the glass, blah, blah, blah.”
Will Barton said he’s tried to keep all the drama at an arm’s length. “(It’s) just as nuts as you indulge in it,” Barton said from shootaround Wednesday morning inside the NBPA gym in downtown Manhattan. “This year is different for me. This year, for myself, I haven’t really paid attention to it as like me being in trade rumors. Of course, you’re going to hear about stuff with the Lakers and AD and stuff like that. Some of the moves that are made, you’re like, ‘wow.’ Tobias going to the 76ers, that’s going to be good for them. It doesn’t affect my daily thinking or routine.”
