Gary Payton Praises Kobe, Tells Dwight Howard to “Get it Together”

Remember Gary Payton? He’s that guy that played for the Lakers in 2003-04 and is going to end up in the Hall of Fame this season. Oh, and he had a pretty superb career as a member of the Seattle Super Sonics before coming to Los Angeles and eventually winning a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006.

Anyways, Payton was on ESPN’s SportsNation recently to film a segment titled “Cardboard Clownin’,” which is not to be confused with Cardboard Gerald.

—- See Dwight Howard through the years in photos! —-

In the segment, Payton tells “Kobe Bryant” that he’s still the best player in the NBA, and has some harsh words for the fake Dwight Howard. I was wondering if Payton would be quite so brash if he were staring down the real Dwight Howard and not the corrugated version, but then I remembered that Payton’s one of the greatest trash talkers the league has ever seen.

Regardless, here’s the video from SportsNation.
