Do you remember “Gary Payton Wireless”? Video

Do you remember “Gary Payton Wireless”?. The correct answer should be NO. I did a little Google research on “Gary Payton Wireless“, and this is all I came up with.

That is all we know, and also we know everything he said about it during this interview on the Shane Coakley show, circa year 2000. I think we can all agree that, and this is not picking on the Glove, this was a failed business idea. I love how he says that he is going to sell “pagers, phones, computers, and we’re gonna do a lot of little stuff”.

If I was an NBA star I would stick to shoes like MJ, Kobe, and LeBron. I would buy Burger Kings like Magic. I would not try to rap, and I would not try to start a monster wireless technology company on a whim:-)

This video is classic. It shows GP at the height of his career. He OWNED Seattle. I think he just had one too many irons in the fire. There is also a nice surprise near the end of the vid.
