Shawn Kemp is an American retired professional basketball player, who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for 14 seasons. The Seattle SuperSonics drafted Kemp in the first round of the 1989 NBA draft. Although extremely athletic, Kemp was the youngest player in the NBA at that time and struggled to find his place. In his first season in Seattle, Kemp was mentored heavily by teammate Xavier McDaniel. As the season progressed, so did Kemp's skills, which propelled him into stardom. Kemp began to find his place in the NBA as a star during his second season with the Sonics. Together with Gary Payton, Eddie Johnson, Ricky Pierce and Nate McMillan, they became a highly successful squad. After Kemp's second NBA season, he picked up the nickname "Reign Man" after Sonics announcer Kevin Calabro saw a poster with the name and thought it fitting to add to his radio broadcasts. Kemp played for the US national team in the 1994 FIBA World Championship in Toronto, winning the gold medal. He also appeared in the MTV Rock N' Jock annual celebrity basketball game. He was a six-time NBA All-Star and a three-time All-NBA Second Team member.
