So Seattle Weekly's Best of Seattle 2012 hit streets today! And what's the best way to celebrate Shawn Kemp being named this year's Best Sports Figure? Why, paying half price (still a cool $1,250) to attend Kemp's upcoming, two-day fantasy basketball camp, of course!
But, you see, many who will learn about the Shawn Kemp Fantasy Basketball Camp will be the type of people who don't like to pay full price - because they're the type of people who are into things like LivingSocial. That's where the Shawn Kemp Fantasy Basketball Camp is now being offered for the astonishingly low price of $1,250! They're practically giving it away!
Perhaps you're not sold yet. From the LivingSocial ad:
Rarely does a sports star become so synonymous with the city in which he plays that his nickname reflects both his playing style and the local weather. But such is the case of Shawn "Reignman" Kemp, former SuperSonics star and your new basketball coach with today's deal from Shawn Kemp Fantasy Basketball Camp: Pay $1,250 to attend the two-day camp (regularly $2,500). For campers of all skill levels, the camp boasts one-on-one coaching with Shawn -- a six-time NBA All-Star nicknamed for his "reign" over the NBA and his ability to rain dunks onto the competition -- and a roster of other surprise celebrity guests. Held at Key Arena and Seattle University's Connolly Center, the event begins with a pre-camp draft on August 24 at 6:30 p.m. The camp then runs from 10 a.m. on August 25 to 6 p.m. on August 26 and includes breakfast, lunch, event gift bags, autograph sessions, inaugural apparel, photo opportunities, a tour of Key Arena, a three-point challenge, basketball practice with Shawn and other NBA legends, and V.I.P. tickets to a Seattle Storm game -- reign or shine.
Did we mention breakfast and lunch will be served buffet style? It's true.
