Default Shawn Kemp back in good shape

This is a few days old, but, from the seattle post-intelligencer: Kemp made a low-key appearance at Colman Playfield near Rainier Valley that left eyes aglow. He was chiseled and cut, conjuring visions of the Second Coming of No. 40.

Kemp's 36-year-old body, having shed 50 pounds, may have rebounded. His mind is playing catch-up.

Just last month, Kemp pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge in Houston, where he keeps a home. He was stopped for driving without a license plate when a deputy smelled "an odor of burnt marijuana" coming from Kemp's car. The deputy found less than two ounces of pot inside, according to news accounts. Kemp was placed under probation for six months.

Who cares? There are enough talented/project big men out there to not have to sign Shawn Kemp. Unless he can prove to a team that he is ready to play a productful 20 mpg, he shouldn't get signed.

I've seen him play in a local summer league. You don't want him. I'll give him some props though, he's in great shape. He looks like the old kemp, he just doesn't play like him.

Kemp missed his Bulls workout

And earlier in the summer missed a mavs workout

So he can be in great shape out of the league
