The Forgotten 90s Star of the Week: Shawn Kemp ☆

The 90′s era of the NBA is an era that stands apart from all other decades throughout the history of basketball.

It was at the epicenter of my fandom of all things sports.  Still living in the dorms with plenty of free time.  I remember these Bucks very well.
