Gary Payton gets traded to Boston and is causing a fuss. He said he would retire before reporting to practice. What a baby this guy is. I know that he's 36 and wants a chance to play in the NBA finals again, but c'mon. He should be happy that teams are willing to take him on after his performance in the playoffs, he flat out played poorly.
The Celtics are a team rebuilding, but they do have a couple of really talented players on that squad (Pierce and Davis). A decent point guard would be key to making those guys blow up. I think he could mesh in well with those two players and help develop point guard, Marcus Banks.
Payton is a crybaby, he should show respect for the game and deal with the situation before him. He complained about his situation in L.A. and he has the nerve to complain about playing in the East, where he would probably do better, considering his game is on the decline. What a sucker, retire and do the game of basketball a favor.
