The Seeds Of Shawn Kemp Are Beginning To Make News Of Their Own


In what will probably be the first of many announcements regarding the progeny of Shawn Kemp (at last count, rumor has it the elder Kemp has sired at least seven children – note: always trust what Wikipedia tell you), Shawn Kemp, Jr., a 6’9″, 235 pound center, has made a commitment to play basketball at Auburn.

Coach Jeff Lebo announced Wednesday that the Tigers signed 6-foot-10, 215-pound center Shawn Kemp Jr. He is a former Alabama signee who is now attending Hargrave Military Academy.

I’m sure Papa Kemp’s heart swelled with pride upon hearing the big news. You know, because the kid is about to go to college, which means he must be almost 18, or is 18 already.

You know what that means: no more child support checks for Junior! Whoo-hoo!
