    I loved watching Barton this season. He avg 16.3 points (on 47 percent shooting), 7.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.7 steals in 37.1 minutes in the last 6 games.

    TBH I forgot about Barton since NO ONE talked about him in our plans. I actually would LOVE to see him get more minutes next season. I feel if this dude added a 3pt shot and 10-20 lbs he would be a BEAST


    What do you think of Barton? Will he last? Will he stay a Blazer?? 


    Thanks to DamianLilard for reminding me of Will Barton

    I'm like 5"9/5"10 and I weigh more than Barton. He definitely needs to bulk up. He is great though and has really improved. I remember when thinking he could be the mascot for Chicago 'cause he used to just ram into guys in transition. He has really shown so much improvement and yeah his three is improving (Like Claver). Also, did you know that Deron Williams weighs more than Nerlens Noel. And D-Will isn't fat. Noel is a few pounds heavier than Lin. JEREMY. LIN.

    If he can keep up that production next year, MIP for sure.

    Barton has some potential he is too thin at the moment. He is also a little out of control at times, which he improved a lot as the season we on. His shooting though was just dreadful at times which is why I pushed for him to go to the d league so he could get consistent minutes and find an offensive rhythm. He is probably a year or two away from being a very solid bench performer.

    Siccolo, did you mean heavier or lighter? I don't think Noel will do well in the league. If he stays healthy long enough, he might be a half decent starter, if not, Greg Oden.

    Noel will be fine he will need to thicken up which he should do. I fully expect to be built like Ibaka down the road, he won't be thick enough to handle the low post against centers but he will still be a force on defense.

    I don't trust big men with a history of injury. Ibaka also weighs more than Noel, but you're right, early days yet, he could bulk up. I am sure, that he will lose some of his speed and athleticism when he does though. Wasn't that one of his best skills.

    Noel was playing at around 220 so I doubt the added weight will slow him down too much the guy just needs to continue his rehab and hit the weight room and he will be fine.

    Now he was around 220 during the season he has lost some muscle mass since not being able to work out heavily since the injury.

    Well, I still think he won't do great in his career. Seems weak.
