Default Report: Gary Payton to mentor Giannis Antetokounmpo

Jason Kidd had a vision going to Milwaukee: to see Giannis Antetokounmpo running the point for the Bucks from the “1” position. The new coach of the “Bucks” is not only determined to implement this idea, but will have the help of one of the top point guards of the 90s in this effort: Gary Payton.

Gary Payton is in Athens today and at an event held during the afternoon in the northern suburbs, he revealed that he has agreed with the Bucks to assume the role of ‘Special Advisor’ for Giannis Antetokounmpo during next season. The “Glove” will start work during pre-season, which will begin at the end of the month, and said that he has met with the 19 year old forward in Las Vegas, as well as with Jason Kidd, with whom he has a long friendship from the years they have both played in the NBA.

This could be really, really helpful for Giannis...J-Kidd is already gonna be there to mentor him and help him hone his playmaking abilities, and now he'll have Payton there to take his competitive mindset and intensity to a new level.. He's already shown a mean streak on the court, an edge to his game that you need to be a great player. Now he's got one of the toughest, most tenacious PGs of all time to help him develop this mentality even more..

First we have Jason Kidd helping this kid's offensive game..

And now Gary Payton helping someone who already has insane defensive potential..

And take his intensity to a whole new level..
