One of the greatest, if not the GOAT of trash talking, Gary Payton, had some strong words about the current scope of the NBA and took to Twitter to air out his opinion.
Known for his tremendous mouth and spectacular defense, The Glove doesn't know if he could play in the NBA, if he were raised in today's game.
I could never play basketball in this soft era. All of my contract money would go toward fines. Lol

Ranked third all-time in technical fouls behind Jerry Sloan and Rasheed Wallace, Payton would surely break that record if he were still playing.
Playing from 1990-2007, the nine-time All-Star and NBA Champion is still frequently seen courtside at Oregon State Beavers basketball games to root on his son Gary Payton II and continues to run his mouth.
