The Reign Man and the Glove stopped by for our 2nd Sonics Forever Live event! It’s not often that you get two of the greatest-ever Sonics together in the same room. Join Seattle SuperSonics legends Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton as they sit down and reminisce about those legendary Sonics teams of the 1990’s.
The Reign Man and the Glove headlined perhaps the most exciting era of basketball in SuperSonics history. From 1990-91 to 1996-97, Kemp and Payton led the Sonics to 7 playoff berths, 5 seasons of 55+ wins, multiple Western Conference Finals appearances, and a heavyweight clash with Michael Jordan and the Bulls in the 1996 NBA Finals. During their 7-year run as teammates, Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton put together a highlight reel for the ages: electric fast breaks and high-flying lobs as they racked up win after win. However, as good as their chemistry was on the court, the pair are even closer off the court. The energy that the Reign Man and the Glove give each other is remarkable; there’s a reason that these two found so much success as a duo. Enjoy this piece of Sonics history!
