man, kemp used to be one of my favorite players. it's just disgusting to see how much he crumbled with everything. it's almost like watching your favorite daughter who was a straight a student become a crack whore or something.

Why didn't he ****ing return should be the real question.

You can go home and check on your house for a few days and make sure everything is okay but this idiot stayed and didn't come back.

It reminds me of an article I read at least a decade ago about Isaiah Rider. Never known for showing up to practice, he apparently had pipes in his house freeze about a dozen times one year and prevent him from going to practice. Now I know Minnesota is a cold place, but seriously?

yeah i know its hard to believe another excuse. but rider's excuse i pretty stupid. hurricane ike actually came through houston and it affected the city so benefit of the doubt?

I hope Shawn Kemp Jr. will not fall into the Dark side.

For some reason it wasn't until AFTER Kemp had left Seattle did I realize that Payton was in fact their number one option.

Because when Kemp dunks it feels like 4 points?

Kidding aisde, in his last three post-seasons with Seattle he was a 21+ ppg / 10+ rpg / 57% player.

Hurricane Ike was almost a month ago now. I'd understand if the hurricane just hit, but it hit while Kemp was still in the US, I believe. As I said, it's just awfully convenient that once again, Shawn Kemp's comeback attempt is derailed by some sort of a complication that he refuses to take accountability for. If Kemp could read and write, I'd encourage him to check out The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

On a related note, I think any hurricane that hits anywhere in the continental USA has a 1-in-3 chance of going through an area where Shawn Kemp has family. Mostly baby mamas and what not.
