After his best performance of the year on Saturday, Shawn Kemp turned in another outstanding effort against Boston on Monday, scoring 12 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. In the game as a starter for a second time because Dale Davis had been suspended, Kemp rose to the occasion. This came on the heels of Kemp's season-high 21 points and 14 rebounds in the previous game.






Shawn Kemp took the tough road to the top.

My book about Shawn Kemp profiles this great NBA star in a beautifully printed, colorful library hardback. As a title in the Chelsea House BASKETBALL LEGENDS series, this book is geared to elementary school readers but contains nuggets of information worthwhile to anyone who follows professional basketball.

Kemp has consistently starred at the highest level of the sport since the early 1990s, even without any college experience. Year in and year out, Kemp finishes among the top six NBA players in scoring, rebounding, and assists. During the 1997-98 season, Kemp led his new team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, straight into the NBA playoffs. During the 2001-2001 season, Kemp joined the Portland Trailblazers.


While it is true that not every decision Kemp has made in his life has been a good one, those that know him best agree that he is a good and decent man, a person of honesty and integrity. My book tells the age-appropriate story of the difficult route Shawn Kemp took to reach the summit of his sport.

Also recommended: BASKETBALL, ITS ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT, by James Naismith. SHAWN KEMP, Star Forward, by Stew Thornley. FULL COURT PRESSURE: A Tumultuous Season with Coach Karl and the Seattle Sonics, by Curt Sampson.







Although Shawn Kemp has had his problems over the years, he remains a good person and contributed some memorable moments to the NBA.
