Overview

From the Author

Shawn Kemp took the tough road to the top. My book about Shawn Kemp profiles this great NBA star in a beautifully printed, colorful library hardback. As a title in the Chelsea House BASKETBALL LEGENDS series, this book is geared to elementary school readers but contains nuggets of information worthwhile to anyone who follows professional basketball. Kemp has consistently starred at the highest level of the sport since the early 1990s, even without any college experience. Year in and year out, Kemp finishes among the top six NBA players in scoring, rebounding, and assists. During the 1997-98 season, Kemp led his new team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, straight into the NBA playoffs. While it is true that not every decision Kemp has made in his life has been a good one, those that know him best agree that he is a good and decent man, a person of honesty and integrity. My book tells the age-appropriate story of the difficult route Shawn Kemp took to reach the summit of his sport.
