Exclamation Shawn Kemp Fans...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t_P8mLnJu0&NR=1

maybe it's just me but this is getting me hyped. Shawn Kemp was my favorite player even through the Jordan era, I liked MJ, had no choice but to respect MJ's game, cuz he is the GOAT, but Kemp was my favorite player hands down. I hope his son is gonna be rain man v2

The closest thing to Shawn Kemp in today's NBA I guess is Dwight Howard.

damn, he really moves like a mini version of his dad. don't know how his overall game is like, but the characteristic tendencies are very apparently similar. the way he dunks, the way he jumps and extends his arms for the oop, the way he kicks his legs before landing....

he even runs down the floor, with his head slightly tilted freely and shoulders hanging loose, and elbows swinging out like his dad.

pretty sure they had a few workouts together for one or a couple dozen times...

well, kemp had like 10 or 20 kids. one of them was bound to have some of his trained genes.

Back when I had respect for GP because he played well and with a passion for the game, rather than just hopping from team to team tryna get a ring..I hate when players do that (i.e. when kevin willis came back last year AFTER he did "pros vs. joes" he went to dallas, and just sat on the bench the whole time, as they got embarassed by the warriors, and also what sam cassell did...)

dwight howard's style is closer to shaq's than kemp's.

kemp was a dribbler and he'd snatch a rebound at the other end, take it down coast to coast, shake and bake a little a la t-mac style, and then thunder jam on 3 or 4 sorry fools. howard ain't got that kinda sickness.

and kemp looked pretty. he looked so pretty, even if he were 6'5", all his moves were pretty looking. they were just flowing in artisitc rhythm.

I really don't see what's wrong with that. Isn't that what everyone plays for? Isn't that better then playing just to collect paychecks? I don't see how he wasn't passionate. He took a reduced role but was still playing a big role on teams. And didn't he go to the Celtics one year when they weren't championship contenders at all?
