Gary Payton doesn't like today's NBA; only likes three PG's in the NBA right now. Is John Wall one of them?

No - He only likes CP3, Rondo and TP...I thought he was going to say John Wall when he said "another kid", but then went with TP...I wouldn't be surprised if he thought about John Wall for a second and then realized that Wall's still so young and still developing.

Anyways here's the link, and he starts talking about the NBA at the 9:26 mark:

He basically thinks today's NBA is too soft, and there's no defense, and it's mainly run and gun. He also doesn't like that in 1-on-1 situations the rules are too helpful to the offensive player, since if you "touch" him it's a foul. So basically it's hard to go 1-on-1 from a defensive perspective.

I still hope John Wall can meet up with GP this summer and stays in touch with him given that his game's got a lot of similarities with GP's. With that said I'm not sure how much Wall can learn from GP given the rules have changed a lot since GP's time.
