Sean Meagher of OregonLive.com has an interview with Portland Trail Blazers guard Will Barton, who sounds happy with life, including his team's chemistry.

Seems like you have good camaraderie going with your teammates ...

"Oh yeah, all the guys on this team are great guys. No crybabies, no prima donnas; everybody is just happy-go-lucky. We joke and we laugh with each other. We all get along and we communicate. That's made my transition easier."

You're one of five rookies on the team. Has there been a veteran -- like Wesley Matthews -- that's taken you under his wing?

"All the veterans, really. I talk to Wes a lot. ... LaMarcus (Aldridge), J.J. (Hickson), Jared Jeffries. ... everyone. All the veterans look out for me, so I really appreciate it."
