This weekend was one for second comings. LeBron James Jr. showed out in his hometown of Akron and in Indianapolis, while Shaq’s son Shareef was showing that he’s a high major prospect at the EYBL. Twenty miles away from the Nike event, there was another NBA legend’s son doing work: Shawn Kemp’s son Jamon.
Bearing a striking resemblance to his father, Jamon doesn’t quite have the size of his Pops, but already has some skills on the outside. Running with Washington Supreme of the Under Armour Association, Kemp had no problem fitting in despite playing up a year. He defended multiple positions on the perimeter, blocked a ton of shots, and was a beast on the offensive glass. The Seattle Garfield product hit a couple of deep jumpers and made some good slashes to the rack, too. Shawn Kemp had an older son, Shawn Kemp Jr., who wrapped up a collegiate career at the University of Washington in 2015. While the younger Jamon doesn’t quite have the Reign Man’s bounce or size yet, the 6-foot-5 swingman has the athleticism and game to develop into a serious prospect down the road.
