Gary Payton - Hall of Famer

Payton was also the focal point of one of the greatest moments of NBA officiating I have ever seen.  Payton already had a technical foul against Minnesota and got into a jawing contest with KG.  Ref gives them each a T.

Payton is now tossed.

Payton looks at the ref and says, "Well, then, I am gone.  I got 2 (holds up 2 fingers).  I am gone!"  Basically, Payton was saying, "You fucking idiot. You don't toss me on that."  Ref rescinds the T......but only on Payton!!  KG still gets the T.

Awesome.
