20 days left until the 2010-11 NBA season tips off.
Brought to you by Gary Payton and his defensive intensity.
I don’t normally get all gushy over bros in the NBA but The Glove is my favorite player of all-time. Payton wasn’t just one of the greatest defensive players in NBA history, he was also one of the best points to ever run the game.
At the peak of his game, he averaged 24 points, 8.9 assists, 6.5 rebounds and 1.9 steals. All of this while becoming one of the most prolific trash talkers in the Association. Plus he used to rock some dope ass kicks.
