During the All-Star break in 1993, NBA legend Gary Payton returned to San Francisco with his girlfriend to visit friends and family. Whilst in an apartment-building parking lot, Payton was confronted and a man pulled a gun on him. After being threatened, Payton handed over his watch, ring, a necklace and $1,000 in cash. He then attempted to grab the robber’s gun, and the struggle caused a shot to be fired into the ground. Payton was then able to sprint to safety, but the gunman would get away with around $60,000 worth of money and jewelry. The Glove would state “People know you. They watch you. They follow you. Then they come out of the dark and hold you up.”
