Gary Payton Says Him and Shawn Kemp are ‘The Original Lob City’

Gary Payton calls him and Shawn Kemp the original lob city.

Hall of famer Gary Payton was known for trash talking during his playing days and that characteristic has translated nicely into his post-career.

In his latest run of rants, Payton reminded the media at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend in Springfield, Massachusetts that Chris Paul and Blake Griffin aren’t the original lob city.

“When people say Lob City or stuff like that, we were the original Lob City,” Payton said. “We don’t want to call it Lob City, we just called it Reign Man and the Glove.”
