Best Hooper: Will Barton

East Baltimore’s own Will Barton, a guard with the Denver Nuggets, averaged 28.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.8 blocks, and 2 steals per game in the Brunson League this summer and led his team Protect The Family (PTF) to the Brunson League championship. More impressive than his game is the impact he has on the culture of Baltimore basketball: by being accessible to fans who may not be able to catch him the one time the Denver Nuggets come to Washington D.C. Barton ended the summer by giving away free book bags to the kids at Rose Hill Terrace during his annual Thrill Weekend event.
