Following a 113-101 win over Chicago Marcus Smart sat with headphones for a post-game interview on Yahoo! sports “the Jump” program. Smart had a complete performance at home versus the Bulls tallying 12 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds and 3 steals.

Hall of fame host of the show, Gary Payton told the Celtics PG he was a big fan of Marcus Smart. The man nicknamed “The Glove” for his defensive prowess likened himself to Marcus saying:

“I love you... you remind me of myself.... a lot.”

It is big time kudos for Smart to get complimented by a former legend and a player as distinguished as Payton. “The Glove” was an NBA All-Defensive First Team selection on nine seperate occasions.
