Gary Payton a legend in the sports world, he played for the Seattle Sonics back in his hay day! He confirmed with NBA.com induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
The finalists will be announced Monday and are expected to include college coach Rick Pitino, and Knicks legend Bernard King among others. Payton spent 12 1/2 seasons with the Sonics including a Finals appearance. Payton is fourth all-time in steals in NBA history. Congrats.. Great guard that happened to get over shadowed by Jordan. But who didn’t.
