Dope music and a Shawn Kemp sighting had the arena rocking like a Sonics game.

Since the Sonics left Seattle in 2008, KeyArena hasn’t hosted too many huge events. A few weekends back, though, Bumbershoot had the place rocking like the ’96 Finals. The cheering reached a crescendo when Macklemore—who we featured in KICKS—clad in a Shawn Kemp jersey, brought the real Reignman onstage. If the crowd’s reaction to the Seattleite Macklemore, Kemp and Sonics gear is any indication, Key Arena is still fiending for NBA action. Unfortunately, that’s not happening anytime soon. So for now, peep the gallery to fill your Seattle basketball jones.
