When Gary Payton woke up Wednesday morning, he had no idea he would end the day with a season-high 29 points and a broken heart after losing a two-point game.

Because the day before, he finished the game with a career-high 18 assists while the game before that he added three steals to his Hall of Fame total of 2,021 and the game before that he would hit 3 of 4 shots from three-point range after filming a video game commercial starring none other than, well, himself drilling, well, three-point shots.

Such is the life of an NBA point guard.
