DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK, SEAN KEMP TO PLAY BALL IN ITALY

In INTERNATIONAL NEWS, SPORTS on August 18, 2008 at UTC.10.31.

The Italian team Premiata Montegranaro has announced that 38-year-old SHAWN KEMP has verbally committed to play for the team starting in November. Kemp, who is a 6 time NBA All-Star is 38 years old. Kemp last played in the NBA during the 2002-2003 season.

The Italian team is led by head coach Alessandro Finelli. “He is very motivated,” Finelli said. “And he has been staying in shape to show up at our camp in good shape.”

Kemp averaged 14.6 points and 8.4 rebounds over 14 NBA seasons. He played eight years with Seattle, three with Cleveland, two with Portland and finished with one season in Orlando.

“We will discover with work in the gym if he will be a key player for our team,” Finelli said. “Now, it’s too soon to say that.”

Hmm, well if your team is counting on a 38 year old has been, then your team might be in trouble. Then again who knows what numbers Kemp can put up as a wily veteran, with limited athleticism. Basketball is just as much mental as it is physical, which explains one reason why TEAM USA lost so many international games over the last four years.

Kemp is a decent guy so I hope he can add to his legacy, and not do to much to damage it….

GO KEMP!!!
