Correct me if I'm wrong, but its still a pretty big deal to get an endorsement deal from Nike right? Like I know highly touted projected top of the lottery draft picks ink deals prior to even hearing Adam Silver announce their names, but is it common for late first round picks to get deals? If yes, and I'm behind in the times, still congratulatiuons to Payton. But if it is still a rather exclusive honor, then this is even cooler.
Payton celebrated making the deal with Nike official by going for a career high 28 points on Tuesday night. We won't talk about how his teammates outside of Jaylen Brown performed.
