A rumor from China..
A rumor that started from a chinese blog has circled the globe in the last couple of days and ended up.. here.
The rumor refers to ex-NBA Legend and currently TV anchorman Gary Payton who at the age of 40 is rumored to be talking to the chinese team of Shanxi. According to the rumor the price for Gary Payton's services to the chinese team amounts up to 100,000 dollars per month. (supposedly went up from 50,000 dollars) It also says that Payton shopped around via his agent with other chinese teams to see what they would offer.
The article suggests that this will be more like a basketball investment for China rather than anything else. An interesting read nevertheless..
