One of my favorite athletes growing up was Shawn Kemp. This dude was a beast for the Seattle Sonics. I remember my dad took me to see them play the Lakers when I was little. Of course, the Lakers whooped there but. There was however a short stint when Seattle was the team to beat. They had Kemp, Gary Peyton and Detlef Schrempf. Man, they were explosive.

Especially Kemp. He was known for his sick dunks and his crazy antics. Unfortunately he was also known for his childish behavior and never showing up to practice on time or at all. He was an all-star and one of the top 5 gifted dunkers in the league. Period. Here is a highlight reel of some of his more memorable throw downs…enjoy.
