Reebok debuted this commercial during the 95-96 playoffs featuring the new Optix sneakers and some nice Reign Man dunks.  The Optix replaced the popular Kamikaze II and came before the Reignman series that he continued to wear in Cleveland.

I had the pleasure of catching up with Kemp again this weekend when he played in the NBA legends game at the University of Houston on Saturday.  I previously worked with Shawn when we were looking to bring a 3BA franchise to Houston a few years back.

One of my favorite pieces of memorabilia is this signed copy of the 2nd issue of Slam Magazine.
