As the Seattle Kraken select their first roster of players in Wednesday’s NHL expansion draft, some of the city’s most famous athletes took center stage to announce their names.
In attendance was Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird, Seattle Sounders FC forward Jordan Morris, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and former running back Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis, and former Seattle SuperSonics stars Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp as well as Hall of Fame coach Lenny Wilkens.
Nobody stole the show quite like Kemp, not because of something he said or did, but because nobody decided to give him a shirt that actually fit him.
He also had trouble pronouncing Joonas Donskoi’s name.
This Seattle franchise will be a fun addition to the league, and their jerseys should look great in action.
