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.
