Gary Payton Jr.’s Reaction To Warriors Not Covering The Spread (Video)

Gary Payton Jr.’s Reaction To Warriors Not Covering The Spread (Video)

Gary Payton Jr.’s reaction to the Golden State Warriors not covering the spread against the Washington Wizards on Friday night caused something of a stir.

This week, Jordan Poole made his triumphant return to The Bay after his unceremonious exit this summer. While that was the main storyline coming into this outing, the thing everyone couldn’t stop talking about afterward was a sequence that occurred at the very end.

Coming into Friday night, the spread for this particular match-up was either -11.5 or -12 depending on where you looked.

When a meaningless three was hit as the clock expired, reducing the Warriors’ lead to 11 points, Payton Jr. offered an intriguing reaction:

NBA fans at home not only noticed Payton Jr.’s response to the shot, but also had some strong takes on what it meant:

Obviously in an NBA week that saw a model distract players from courtside with her outfit and Myles Turner’s girlfriend’s provocative photos set the internet ablaze this probably wont become a huge story.

That said, people definitely noticed.

And folks are clearly talking.

Will Payton Jr. come out and explain himself at some point this weekend? Time will tell.
