This is a long way for Gary Payton. The former Seattle player waited for his 16th (and penultimate) time with the Lions and his third entry in the Finals, after 1996 and 2004, to become a champion, in 2006 with Miami .
for his son, Gary Payton II, Faster, but not easier. We knew Golden State had a long way to go to establish itself in the NBA and he was ready to become an assistant with the Warriors before the season started!
“A lot”Said the full finale after the win he celebrated with the first defender of the year. “It’s crazy, I didn’t expect this to happen. I have won more than him. I have my title now and I have something to answer to it now. Good idea. »
In fact, he was a leader like his father and was rarely seen in history. The Paytons are the only five father duo to make their name on the NBA’s honorary roster.
Ahead of them are Payton II’s teammates, Klay Thompson (2015, 2017, 2018 and 2022) and his father Mychal, who were crowned with the Lakers in 1980 (1987, 1988). The real Waltons, with father Bill (1978, 1986) and son Luke at the Lakers (2009, 2010). Not to forget the Barrys, Rick’s famous father, the champion with the Warriors (1975), and Brent with the Spurs (2005, 2007).
Finally, Matt Goukas Sr. also won. with the Warriors in his first NBA season (1947) before his son, Matt Goukas Jr., with six, twenty years later (1967).
And if the Rockets had won the title in 1986 against Boston, the Wiggins could have added their name to this small roster. Mitchell Wiggins, Andrew’s father at the time, played in the Finals against Larry Bird and his team, but the Celtics were strong.
