Starting Lineups: Because You Probably Missed Gary Payton’s Hall Of Fame Speech

I’ve got a real issue with the NBA Hall of Fame ceremonies that take place every year in September. For one, I don’t think it’s presented very well. For two, I hate that the Hall of Fame is located in Springfield, Massachusetts. For three, why in hades is the enshrinement on the opening...
