In the Sonics/Spurs game today, Gary Payton and Tim Duncan led their team in points, rebounds and assists. Wow

It was great, and Payton is a great leader. One of the most overlooked superstars in the league today.

i've always been a huge payton fan, all the way back to oregon state. i was really worried that being the leader of a young, rebuilding team wouldn't be for him, but, to his credit, he's calmed down, taken the leadership role and really helped out the younger guys. i think alot of that has to do with nate over on the bench. payton seems to have a lot of respect for him and has taken mcmillan's request to become the young guys' mentor very seriously.
