Before kicking off their weekends, several Denver Nuggets players went through a grueling workout session at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The high altitude (the amphitheatre sits at 6,450 feet above sea level at its peak height) and plethora of steep steps provide the players with a challenging training session. Monte Morris, Will Barton, Jarred Vanderbilt, Michael Porter Jr., Thomas Welsh and Brandon Goodwin participated in the Friday morning workout.
Barton responded to those comments [from Seth Curry calling him sassy] following the Nuggets’ practice on Saturday. “I pay no mind to it. I know who I am. People who know me know what I represent,” Barton told BSN Denver. “That’s pretty funny coming from a guy like him. There’s nothing ‘front runner’ or ‘sassy’ about me. Especially coming from him. I don’t even take him seriously coming from where I come from, so it doesn’t matter.”
“To me that’s weak,” Malone said Saturday. “If that’s chippiness, I mean, I grew up in a much different time in the NBA. If that’s chippiness and you want to call us ‘sassy,’ go ahead, but to me, it’s a joke. It’s Will Barton protecting himself from a guy falling into his knees. Seth Curry taking offense to it, they get into a minor skirmish, move on. “Game 7 will be hard fought, it will be emotional because of what’s at stake, but I don’t think it will be a carryover from what happened last game. It’s playoff basketball. It should be a hard-fought game, it should be physical and it should be teams protecting each other. Again, that’s a different era when you think about my father when he was with the Bad Boys and all that. That was nothing in my opinion.”
