We all known Shawn Kemp. He's the very athletic and very hard working player during his days with the then Seattle Supersonics of the NBA. His career ended earlier than expected because of health issues. He was overweight and he just can't check it. It prompted him to end his 14 years in the NBA in a low note. But just like any other great persons who did great things, he is also bound to be replaced as his dear son, Shawn Kemp Jr. is slowly getting the hype and the attention that his father used to experience. Kemp Jr. recently made a buzz when he signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Washington Huskies after seating out his 2 playing years for the University of Alabama. The University of Washington is the same school that produced the likes of Nate Robinson and Brandon Roy.
When you look at Kemp Jr. chances are, you'll think that he was a highly recruited stud because he stands 6'9 and he's a solid player like his father but you'll be shocked if he'll tell you that he didn't receive as many invites that Austin Rivers had when the college recruiting season was on its peak. But nonetheless, what matters most is that he'll play in an NCAA Division 1 School because he'll have a better chance to be in the NBA like his father.
The University of Washington told the media 2 days ago that the 6'9 Kemp who plays the forward position has signed a scholarship agreement. That's a welcoming news because I believe that he'll be a nice addition to their veteran line-up. He'll soon be playing with the very heady point guards of the Huskies, Antoine Hosley and Isiah Thomas. They are such great passers.
If you want to see him play, then here's how Shawn Kemp Jr. dominates the court. I'm sure that he will be doing plenty of alley-hoops and dunks for the Huskies courtesy of Hosley and Thomas.
