Born in Oakland, California, Gary Payton grew up to be an Basketball Hall of Famer. He spent 13 of his 17 seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics. "The Glove" was a defensive wizard, but also averaged 16.3 points per game in his career. Payton returned to his native Oakland to toss a ceremonial pitch and earn his Celebrity Jersey Card.
