Trash-talking legend Gary Payton had his name attached to a handful of Nike sneakers but in 1999-'00, wearing the Zoom GP and Zoom GP II, Payton put up incredible numbers: 24 points, nearly nine assists and six-and-a-half dishes a game. That was impressive, but he was about the only person in Seattle doing anything and the Sonics got bumped from the playoffs in the first round.
