In episode 19 we look at Denver Nuggets wing Will Barton. To me, as great as Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Gary Harris etc are, Barton is the Nuggets x-factor. The reason being is due to his size, skill and versatility on both ends, it’s hard for opposing teams to game plan for him. He usually has a mismatch and when he’s on his game, the Nuggets hardly lose. Barton is having an strong season, averaging 15.1 points, 6.5 rebounds,3.7 assists on 44 percent from the field, 38 percent from deep and 76 percent from the line, yet it’s his versatility defensively that makes him stand out as a complete wing. The Nuggets won’t go as far as they are hoping to go if he doesn’t perform.
