Rewind: Live chat with former Sonic Shawn Kemp

Shawn Kemp was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics in the first round of the 1989 NBA Draft and played eight seasons for the Sonics.

The "Reign Man" was also a member of the gold-medal winning U.S. national team at the 1994 FIBA World Championships in Toronto.

He now owns a restaurant, Oskar's Kitchen, in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood and is still a well-known face around Seattle.

Kemp talked about his basketball career, life after basketball, his thoughts on the Kings' sale and much more in a live chat May 29.
