Why did NBA 2K22 MyTEAM choose him?
With all of the incredible players in the history of the NBA, some are wondering why Gary Payton is the first Dark Matter card.
Well, for starters, defense is honestly one of the toughest parts of NBA 2K22 MyTEAM. What better player to add than the man nicknamed "The Glove" during his time in the NBA.
He won Defensive Player of the Year in the 1995-1996 season, the first and only point guard to ever do so. He was also selected to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for a record of nine times in his career.
Widely considered one of the best point guards of all time, Payton holds the Seattle franchise record in points, assists, and steals. Needless to say, he deserves the first 99 OVR Dark Matter card in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM.
