Robinson: Blazers G Will Barton Reflects On Baltimore Exhibition

6
On Wednesday, we posted video of Portland Trail Blazers guard Will Barton scoring a reported 72 points in a Baltimore exhibition game. Heather Robinson of SLAMOnline.com caught up with Barton afterwards to discuss his performance and his endorsement deal with Under Armour. ------------------------------------- SLAM: Can you talk about what it’s like to come back to your hometown and put on a show the way you did tonight, scoring 72 points? WB: I was actually real nervous before the game because I wanted to put on a very good show for the [crowd] because I know they don’t get to see me play that often since my games aren’t regularly played out here. To come in here and put on a show like this, it’s real big for me. SLAM: What is it like playing against Team Under Armour? WB: It’s real big. I’m the newest member of that team. Plus they had all pros, so it was real big for me to come out and perform like that. SLAM: What’s it like being an ambassador for Under Armour basketball? WB: It’s real good. You know, they’re on the rise and I’m the first guy from Baltimore to sign with them. So I’m just trying to add my personality and my brand to their brand and hopefully we rise together. ------------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
