As Seattle finalized a plan for a Key Arena remodel with the potential to bring a men’s NBA team back to Seattle, the Bellevue estate that former Seattle Supersonics point guard Gary Payton bought in 1997 came on the market. While it’s been out of Payton’s hands since 2011, very little has changed between then and now, aside from the addition of a pool house. One relic of the NBA All-Star Team alum’s time on the property is a party pad in the main house dubbed “Payton’s Place.” First, to answer what’s likely an obvious question: Yes, the listing includes photos of Payton’s former basketball court, emblazoned with his initials on the sidelines. In fact, the well-manicured three acre grounds include a few different sports courts, plus a putting green, a pool, a hot tub, a wraparound patio, a waterfall, and lawns for relaxing after a game of one-on-one—and that’s just the outside.
