1995 was supposed to be the year of the Reign Man. Kemp and Payton were having great All-Star season and the Sonics finished with the best record in the Pacific Division. They beat Hakeem and the defending champs in the playoffs and then beat Stockton and Malone but then had the unfortunate task of facing MJ and the 72-10 Bulls. So the season ended on a disappointing note for Sonics fans but looking back that was one of the most exciting seasons in Seattle Supersonic history and it all started with this dunkfest against the Lakers on November 4th 1995.
Kemp finished with 23 and 13 and a bunch of NBA2Night at Midnight highlights against the Lakers who were missing Eddie Jones.
