Trail Blazer Will Barton at Player Palooza


One of my favorite Trail Blazers for this season and the last two, Will Barton, Will the Thrill, the People's Champ. It broke my heart that he got traded to Denver on February 19. I wish him success in his NBA career and his life. I got this close to getting to play air hockey with him when Player Palooza got too close to being over and the players had to report to the court. Drat it.


Yep, I'm missing this smile, this man, his joy for life and his determination about and love for basketball. Bye, bye, Will, honey.

I'm sure the kids enjoyed being able to engage with him.

Don't you just hate when they trade players you like.
