The ThinkTank Panel (of One) proudly presents the 30 Most influential People of the last 30 years. These are the people who have shaped and molded the ThinkTank Panel (of One) into what it is today; Arrogant, Neurotic, Ostensibly Ostentatious, and Prohibitively Expensive. Today we look at #27.
In the humble opinion of the ThinkTank Panel (of One) Shawn Kemp was the best in-game dunker of all time! The power, the speed, the flight; The lightning strike!! Each night the ThinkTank Panel (of One) went to sleep dreaming of attacking the rim with such precision and ferocity. The Reign Man held a special place in the ThinkTank Panel (of One)’s dreams each night. This was assured by the Shawnic Boom Poster hanging above the ThinkTank Panel (of One)’s bunk bed.
It was the sight of the Reign Man and Gary Payton walking out of the locker room together to start the second half of a game the ThinkTank Panel (of One) attended against the Utah Jazz, that carried the ThinkTank Panel (of One) through many challenges and trying times. That image of single minded dedication to the game at hand, in a word: Professional. This is the vision the ThinkTank Panel (of One) aspired to one day become (Aside from the 7 illegitimate children).
To this day, the ThinkTank Panel (of One) constantly emulates Shawn Kemp's post Lister Blister celebratory gestures to commemorate everything from ice cream sundaies to presidential elections, and is still moved to tears at the poetic transcendence of the allegory and imagery upon hearing Michael Cage compare Shawn Kemp to a Hurricane………………
And was there anything flyer than the Reebok Kamikazi??
