It’s been a rough go for Didier Drogba and Turkish giants Galatasaray in recent weeks. But nothing that dinner with NBA star Gary Payton couldn’t help fix! Less than 48 hours after a disappointing scoreless draw with Gaziantepspor left Galatasaray 10 points behind Süper Lig leaders Fenerbahce in Turkey, Drogba spent some time with Payton, who was in town conducting a clinic on behalf of the NBA. “Was good to change my mind in this difficult moment,” Drogba wrote via Instagram, clearly not wanting Galatasaray supporters to think he was cavorting with Payton. “Thanks to @nba for this great diner yesterday with a Legend…Mr Gary Payton aka #theglove #NBA #sonics #seattle #supersonics #lakers celtics #miamiheat #istanbul #galatasaray #soccer #basketball #istanbul”
