The EBC Championship Game, between team Sean Bell and team Ooh-Way, took place last night at the very live Rucker Park. The crowd got even more live when special guest Shawn Kemp wearing the new Kamikaze II “Letter of Intent” sneakers showed up. Kemp looked pretty good and actually more fit last night than he did 10 years ago as a member of the Orlando Magic (pic below). He even showed that he could still grab the rim with 2 hands. The new new Reebok sneakers looked nice too but I still think a shoe honoring Kemp’s time at UK is a bad idea..well that is if everybody knew the full story about Kemp’s short college career.
Anyways, congrats to Sean Bell on the championship. congrats to the EBC for putting on such a great event and congrats to Reebok for getting back into basketball and giving us some great retro gear to pick up.
