    I don't think I want Shawn Kemp near anyone on the Rockets during a lockout

    Awesome stuff. I've heard great things about Kemp as an individual trainer...

    (I hope Morris is doing a lot of guard work...)

    If Marcus somehow ends up being able to dunk like Kemp---well, that would be nice.

    So, is Shawn Kemp their long-lost biological father?

    I assume you're referring to when people were calling him Shawn "Blimp"... He had some mental/emotional issues, right? Here are a couple of pics from that time period:

    I'd rather Marcus be working with someon who used to play SF, but a legend is a legend... As much as I would kill to have a young Kemp on this team, I don't remember him doing much but dunking... What other skills could he help these guys master??

    He already has worked out with one of the best tweeners to ever play in the NBA for years in Danny Manning. It is a lockout (-_-) this is good for the TWINS. Most of the time, people that have been on top and stuck around till they hit the bottom make good teachers. They seen and have done many things in many ways. He has had a lot of roles on many teams. Even if it is do as I say - not as I did type of leasons. Anyone that has been in the NBA for as long as SK has a clue. It should not hurt the twins and may help them.

    They need to wear a condom if they are around that guy, but maybe they are long lost children of his.

    If I were their agents, I would be worried about Kemp taking them out to party. I hope Kemp doesn't pressure them to do drugs, because he doesn't want to be the only one in the room doing it. Whatever they do, they need to stay away from the women he introduces. They don't want their sons to be Kemp's baby momma's sons also. They need to get a vasectomy.

    Reminds me of Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.

    Kid: Well, Pop, we had sex.
    Dad: Did you use a condom?
    Kid: (hangdog) No.
    Dad: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! NEVER use a condom, son. It takes away all the feeling!

    I love the The Rain Man, one of my all time favs. Good to see him still being involved with basketball. I hope he can teach those boys a thing or two.
