Elfrid Payton Triple Double 11 Pts/14 Asts/10 Rebs/1 Ejection Full Highlights (3/4/2018)

I don’t really know what Elfrid Payton did in that end-game skirmish to get ejected, but he must have done something, because he definitely wasn’t in the game or on the bench after that point. I keep rewatching the “fight” and I’m not seeing anything particularly egregious. Maybe he concealed an improvised shiv made from…

Elfrid Payton Triple Double 13 Pts/12 Asts/11 Rebs Full Highlights (2/14/2018)

Anyone else getting some Steve Nash vibes from Elfrid Payton in a Suns jersey? No? Just me? Fine. Payton already has half the amount of triple-doubles in Phoenix that Nash did during his whole time there, so I can see why the comparison might fall a little flat. Also, Dragan Bender is no Amar’e. The…

Elfrid Payton 29 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2018)

I can’t tell what the Magic are doing right now, I don’t know why they’d sell so low on Elfrid Payton, but that’s in the past now. It doesn’t matter what they’re doing, because Payton is now a whole continent away where they can’t hurt him anymore. For the time being, at least. Another thing…

Elfrid Payton 19 Points/9 Assists Suns Debut Full Highlights (2/10/2018)

Apparently a point guard averaging 13 and 6 while shooting 52 percent from the field is only worth a second-round pick these days? This snarky comment was brought to you by the Payton Hair Preservation Association, whose stated goal is the preservation of Elfrid Payton’s hair due to its status as a unique representation of…

Elfrid Payton 21 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (1/23/2018)

There was a period of time last season when it seemed like Elfrid Payton was getting a triple-double every other game. I’m sure the frequency wasn’t that high, but that’s what it felt like to me, since I was the one who had to make all those damn highlight videos. This year, however, Payton has…

Elfrid Payton 22 Points Full Highlights (1/21/2018)

Magic fans are always complaining that Elfrid Payton doesn’t have a jumper, but he’s shooting acceptable percentages from both midrange and beyond the arc, albeit on a limited number of attempts. There are a lot of alleged “shooters” who have worse shooting percentage than his. He might pass up open looks because he’s not overly…

Elfrid Payton 27 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/12/2018)

Once again, an Elfrid Payton video ends up being way too long. Over three minutes just for a whole bunch of layups where he can’t see the rim because his hair is in the way? I’m normally fairly optimistic about the ability of my viewerbase to watch highlights, but this one is asking too much…

Elfrid Payton Career High 30 Points/10 Assists Full Highlights (12/23/2017)

Elfrid Payton just scored 30 points, which is more than he has ever scored before and maybe more than he will ever score again, and also added 10 assists for good measure, but there was not a single point in this video where I considered myself “excited”. He’s capable of putting nice stats on occasion,…

Elfrid Payton 22 Points/9 Assists Full Highlights (11/25/2017)

Elfrid “Flattop Got Stuck in a Vacuum” Payton had missed a stretch of eight games early in the season due to some kind of injury (perhaps related to his floppy hair thing). Now he’s back in the starting point guard role and guess what? The Magic have lost eight games in a row. You know…

Elfrid Payton 21 Points/13 Assists Full Highlights (4/12/2017)

These are the last Elfrid Payton highlights of the season. Finally. This guy is incapable of having a good game that doesn’t result in an overlong vid. Too many assists, for one thing. Can he tone down the passing a bit next season? Another thing, not enough threes. The good thing about threes is that…
