'90s Highlights

The lockout-shortened season of 1999 ruined the Reignman's career. He came back out of shape and developed a taste for booger sugar. But we're talking the '90s and in the '90s Kemp was one of the best and most marketable stars in the league. He and Gary Payton put on a show on a nightly basis while playing for the Sonics. We don't think Kemp ever made a jumper, all he did was dunk on fools and make posters out of them. The Reignman got a double-double on a bad day. His Reebok Kamikaze's were the shit too. After a contract dispute with Seattle, he was traded to the Cavs where he put up 18 and nine in three seasons.
