For the newest episode of the Rocky Mountain Hoops Podcast, T.J. McBride sits down with Denver Nuggets starting small forward Will Barton III and his best friend — and CEO of Trap Symphony — Erik “E Sosa” Simmons

Topics include a look at Barton’s great start to the year, what Protect the Family means to both Sosa and Barton, how Sosa felt watching Barton struggle last season and watching Barton thrive this season, common misconceptions that fans have about players, and how NBA players are just as human as any of the rest of us as well as much more.
