Air Jordan XIX SE – Gary Payton Boston Celtics PE
When considering the greatest point guards of all-time, Gary Payton’s name should not be left out of the discussion. The only thing as aggressive as his man-to-man defense was his loud mouth, but let’s not forget that he was a perennial 20-a-game scorer while compiling plenty of assists, a healthy amount of rebounds, and a few steals per game. During the tail end of his career, Payton accepted a diminshed role with hopes of winning a championship ring, joining the powerhouse Los Angeles Lakers for one season and the Miami Heat after a one-year stint in Boston. Riding the coattails of Shaq and Dwyane Wade en route to his first ever NBA Championship. During his time in Boston, Gary Payton, who was a Jordan Brand athlete, wore this Air Jordan XIX SE in a Black/Gold/Green colorway, which featured ‘GP’ and ’20′ on the heels. ‘The Glove’ will forever be remembered as one of the most complete players in NBA history with a solid signature line of sneakers to boot, so if you want to own this piece of GP memorabilia spotted by Complex, grab these rare PEs from ronnskizzle on eBay.
Are they sure he did not wear these when playing with the Sonics? Similar colors but these would match better with our uniforms..... Sonics RIP (big sigh)
