George Karl Still Loves Gary Payton Defense

Before George Karl came to Denver, he had a pretty awesome team in Seattle back in the day and Gary Payton ran the show. Not only on offense, but on defence too and if you ask coach Karl he’ll tell you the same. If fact, he’ll tell you “The Glove” was the best defender he ever coached.

One NBA Defensive Player of the Year (1996), nine NBA All-Defensive First Team (1994–2002) selections later. That statement holds up. I would talk about the time GP guarded Michael Jordan in the 1996 NBA Finals too, but lets hear about that from the man himself.
