Kevin Garnett: Skunkbear?

by

Here’s an interesting photo pulled from the SI Vault . . .

Wikipedia reveals that Garnett turned pro out of high school in 1995, the first prep player to jump to the pros since Darryl Dawkins and Bill Willoughby were drafted by Philly and Atlanta, respectively, in ’75.  The Big Ticket also played soccer in high school. A Mike Gundy visor to anyone with video of the 6’11” soccer player.

We also found this on Wikipedia . . .

“During his senior year, Kemp signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at the University of Kentucky. However, he left the team after he was caught pawning two gold chains that had been reported stolen by his teammate Sean Sutton.”

This tells us two things: 1. Sean Kemp technically did not jump straight to the NBA from high school and 2. Former Okie State coach Sean Sutton both owned and admitted to owning gold chains. We’re not sure if this somehow implicates Sutton in one of Kemp’s two hundred paternity suits.
