The Reign Man … is now the Strain Man — because ex-NBA star Shawn Kemp is officially in the marijuana business. The 50-year-old Seattle SuperSonics legend is opening Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis in Seattle on Oct. 30 — a shop poised to become the first Black-owned dispensary in the city. In fact, Kemp’s even hosting former Sonics teammate, Gary Payton, at next week’s grand opening. “I’m looking forward to welcoming Sonics fans on a regular basis, starting with opening day,” Kemp said in a statement. “I hope that Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis will be an inspiration for people to get involved with the legal cannabis industry, especially people of color.”

Gary Payton wants to coach in the NBA

Hall of Fame guard Gary Payton told Yahoo Sports that he is interested in coaching in the NBA and wants it known that he’s passionate about this next phase and is available to join a coaching staff. “I have had conversations in the past about coaching, but the timing wasn’t right. I believe I now am ready to coach,” Payton told Yahoo Sports in a phone interview Thursday night. “A lot of young NBA players are a voice away from reaching their true potential. I would like to join an NBA staff where I can help coach, mentor and guide players toward the hard work, focus and determination needed to become a reliable contributor to a team’s success.”
Gary Payton: So y’all wanna know what this Heat Culture about, huh? Alright, I’ll tell you a story. Back in ’05, when Pat Riley took over as coach of the Heat, he went out and got a bunch of fighting guys. Just a bunch of fighters, you know what I mean?? Pat had been recruiting me since ’96. He offered me a lot of money to come to Miami at the end of my contract. I turned it down, because I felt like I was still building something in Seattle, and wasn’t ready to switch teams.
