I’ve been invited to be a contributing author to an upcoming book on the NBA. I was asked who are the Top 10 Most Instrumental Seattle SuperSonics of All Time?
Listen to James Donaldson speak about the Top 10 All Time Most Instrumental SeattleSuperSonics – #2 Gary “The Glove” Payton http://qwips.com/8gkwt8
Here is my list (going from #10 – #1). Let me know what you think!
#2 – Gary Payton
Gary “The Glove” Payton was the best true “point guard” the Sonics ever had. He led the team flawlessly night after night and year after year. With “breakneck” speed, he was able to score at will, and play “lockdown” defense on any guard in the league. He was also known for his nonstop chatter on the court as he was either barking out orders to his teammates, or “trash talking” with an opponent. He was part of the great Seattle teams throughout the 90s’.
