Arrivederci, Reignman?

As reported earlier by Ball In Europe, it would seem that Shawn Kemp's foray into the Italian League may be shorter than Sarah Palin's grace period with the media.

Now, basketcentral.com is reporting that Kemp's excuses for returning to the U.S. are beginning to mount, and that "voices in the corridor" are speaking of his imminent release from the team. Essentially, while Kemp's frequent departures to the U.S. may be the reason given for his release, the reality is that his physical condition is not up to par for the Italian League.

It's a surprising development, true, but like everything in Italy, things are not always as they seem, and while at the moment it may appear that Kemp's days with Premiata Montegranaro are dwindling, that perception could change in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the update, Bob. I noticed your comment after I had already posted the story. It's too bad for everyone involved that this didn't work out. A healthy, motivated Kemp would have been a good addition to Premiata, and it would have been good for Kemp as well.
