Following the Q+A session, Payton and friends relaxed in a luxurious skybox, complete with plush pillows and a large flat screen TV, while watching the NBA tournament. Payton enjoyed Emeril Lagasse‘s signature cuisine as he dined on a chopped salad and hot dog while sipping on cranberry juice.

During the entire event excited fans came up to Payton for autographs, photos, and insider information on who he thought would win the tournament. The ever humble Payton was all smiles as he greeted each guest that approached him with a handshake and engaging conversation.
