What type of drugs is he on?
lol did you read the article?
He basically said he was stupid and Stockton would outsmart him on the court, but he said he was the better player than Stockton. SMH Gary Payton is on drugs.
I love GP. Dude talks so much smack talk, wish it was more players in the league like him.
Michael Jordan be like: "Suit up fool!"
I can understand what Payton's saying. I don't think he means he could shut down Jordan or anything like that. I think he's saying he could get into Jordan's head a bit and he couldn't with Stockton. Stockton was so smart and headstrong that he could keep running the show and there wasn't much you could do about it.
That's why he compares himself to Stockton: he might be better as an overall player in terms of skill, but Stockton was so disciplined on the court that it made up for the difference. I think the example of Jordan was merely meant to point out how disciplined Stockton was in comparison to somebody often considered the most cerebral player to ever play the game.
