Throughout the nineties,the Seattle Supersonics commanded attention. As talented as it was volatile,the team kept both its rivals and fans in suspense. And this was largely due to one of the flashiest duos the league has ever seen--Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp. While Payton turned heads with his stifling defense and continual trash talk,Kemp was revered for his brute power and sheer athleticism. Payton made six All-Star appearances and racked up over 15,000 points during his fourteen seasons in the league. Payton made nine All-Star appearances,was named to the All-Defensive First Team nine times,and in 1996 he led the league in steals and was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Celebrate the duo with Stance's Payton/Kemp.
