Gary Payton: Rondo one of only 3 true PG’s in the NBA

Gary Payton is one of the NBA all time great point guards.  Yeah, I used a picture of him as a Celtic, but this is the dude who made a living throwing Shawn Kemp some sick alley oops.  If you’re too young to have seen him play, just watch this video and be careful not to hurt your jaw as it drops watching some of these plays (an alley oop from your knees?  Really, Glove?)...

1990 NBA Draft Remix

Way back in the way back, back when I penned (digitally) a weekly NBA draft column for SLAM, I did a series of articles where I “remixed” NBA drafts from years past.  With hindsight, how would the order of the players selected in that draft change?  Since those articles are disappearing from the internets, I figured it was prime time to redo them with a fresh perspective.  Next...

Lakers Rumors: Gary Payton to be added to L.A.’s coaching staff?

Byron Scott may not have been named the head coach of the Lakers (yet) but the general assumption round the league is that the Lakers legend will land the job eventually, so much so that veteran reporter Gery Woelfel from the Racine Journal Times is calling Scott the “likely new” head coach of the purple and gold. However, Woelfel also shared another interesting little gem on...

Elfrid Payton: If ‘The Glove’ Fits?

Take notice of the point guard from Louisiana-Lafayette. University of Louisiana-Lafayette point guard Elfrid Payton is everyone’s favorite “sleeper” PG in the 2014 draft.  The young man is long, agile, quick and fairly athletic. Although a junior he’s very young for his draft class, just a few weeks older than many of the draft’s highly touted freshmen like Joel Embiid...

The Forgotten 90’s Player of the Week: Rik Smits

  The 90's era of the NBA is an era that stands apart from all other decades throughout the history of basketball. It is defined not only by the greatest player of all-time but it also seemed as if every player in the league had a certain swagger about them. The play was hard-nosed, the players were tough, the jerseys were cool, and the haircuts were even cooler. This 10 year...

LeBron passes Bird, Payton in scoring, but Heat fall to Kings in OT

The Miami Heat hoped to rest three banged-up regulars and lean on LeBron James to steal a road victory before visiting one of the best teams in the Western Conference. Instead, the Sacramento Kings spoiled those plans -- and James hurt himself in the process. DeMarcus Cousins had 27 points and 17 rebounds, Rudy Gay scored 26 and the Kings rallied from an early 17-point deficit...

When FS Live launched, it featured an athlete panel that harkened back to the days of Best Damn. The panel's role has been reduced and athletes now focus more on their particular sports throughout the program...
