Nuggets’ Will Barton enters the Pepsi Center in witty fashion with TNT sign
Will Barton of the Denver Nuggets turned his entrance into a fashion show at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Thursday night. Barton displayed a TNT sign before the national television broadcast of the game between the Nuggets and the Dallas Mavericks.
Look at Barton’s outfit in a photo posted by Bleacher Report. The 28-year-old guard even brought an assistant to hold up a sign which read “Thrill National Television.”

The Nuggets entered their game against the Mavericks with a 44-22 record, good for second place in the Western Conference. For much of the regular season, they held the number one spot. They’re just a game and half behind the Golden State Warriors. Given this, we should expect an exciting finish in the West to see who will gain home-court advantage throughout the Western Conference playoffs.
Barton has played only 27 games so far this season. To remind you, he suffered a hip injury in the second game of the season. He subsequently went under the knife to repair the hip. He came back on Jan. 12 against the Phoenix Suns. For the season, he is averaging 12.1 points per game, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.3 assists.
He’s had his fair share of struggles since coming back from the injury, but on a good night, Barton is capable of producing 15 to 20 points. Despite being a guard, he is also active in crashing the boards, which has made him a great asset for the Nuggets.
