Shawn Kemp for three guys

When he arrived in Cleveland three years ago, Shawn Kemp was a skywalking power forward who had nearly denied Michael and the Bulls one of their precious NBA titles. The Cavaliers traded for Kemp and signed him to a huge contract, which he seemingly devoured with a pint of blue-cheese dressing. The NBA's leading sperm donor put up decent numbers, but the Cavs wanted a star, not a sweating plodder who fouled out when he got bored. We hear the Cavs got three guys from Miami in a three-way trade, but the key acquisition was the salary cap room Kemp was set to hog.
