Sean Kemp's new network.
For the first time, black-owned
Tongue Camp, one of the big NBA stars of the 90s and early millenniums, has a new career.
The star of the Seattle SuperSonics group, which is now past the age of 50, will launch a completely legal chain of cannabis (Wade) stores on October 30, and will in fact be the first black-owned "pharmacy" in the city.
Gary Peyton (the 'glove'), who apparently remembers the youthful kindness of his good teammate, is also expected to attend the grand opening, which will take place at the end of this month.
"I hope my new network - 'Sean Kemp's Cannabis' will inspire people to connect with the legal cannabis industry, especially black people like me," Kemp explained.

Kemp, who joined two longtime cannabis industry figures in Washington state as early as 2014, hopes not to fail in the new venture: "I want to provide the most affordable prices, while providing the best selection and nothing less. The chain stores carry my name and I worked hard to make it happen".
Kemp, who has been selected for the All-Star Game 6 times and starred in the Supersonics uniform until 1997, is the club's blockbuster (959) and second in rebounds (5,978).
He later also played in Cleveland, Portland and Orlando (2002/3).
