Gary Payton speaks the truth

BDL: Who in your opinion is the best point guard in the game right now?

GP: Chris Paul.

Even more interesting:

BDL: You said recently that you believe Seattle will have another team by 2011, what makes you so sure?

GP: A lot of people don't know why the city took the deal ... the NBA guaranteed [Seattle] that they can get a team back in 2011. They can keep their colors, keep their tradition, and they can keep their name, and gave them 75 million dollars. Most people don't know what was in the deal, and that's why the city took the deal because they knew they're gonna get a basketball team back.
