Kemp is back! (In Kent?!)

According to the Kent Reporter (and my brother), Shawn Kemp will be making an appearance at a fund-raiser for K-M basketball this weekend. Also, SHAWN KEMP LIVES IN MAPLE VALLEY?!?
Marvena Kemp says it's doubtful her husband Shawn Kemp will play in the inaugural Hoopfest at Kent-Meridian High School
"He might but I doubt it," Kemp said about the former NBA player who lives in Maple Valley. "He's rehabbing from flag football. But he will come out to support it." 
Teams can still sign up for the Dec. 3-4 event. Games will run from about 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Proceeds will benefit the Kent-Meridian girls basketball team to help pay for uniforms , travel to tournaments and other expenses.
Read the whole story here.

The fact that Shawn Kemp now lives in the small town that all three of the Supersonicsoul writers grew up in is my nomination for Ironic Twist of The Year. If he ends up coaching at Tahoma, I might explode.

As soon as they put that extra stoplight in near Wilderness Village, you knew it was only a matter of time before the celebrities started showing up.

He was in the Seattle downtown AT&T store tonight. The workers said he was really friendly and even took a picture with one of them.

It is always great to have former players of all the teams hang out and contribute to the Seattle area community! That is what makes Seattle and The Great Northwest a very special place to live!
