He was teammates with Shelden Williams of the Boston Celtics on the varsity basketball team that won the state title their junior and senior years.Kemp had his first career walk-off hit on June 16 against the Oakland A`s. On September 24, he became the first player in Dodger history to hit at least .295, with 25 home runs, 100 RBIs, and 30 steals in one season. Kemp hit his first career postseason home run on October 7 in his first at bat of the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals. After the season, he was selected as recipient of both the Gold Glove Award and the Silver Slugger Award.Kemp`s nickname is "The Bison." During the second major league game of Kemp`s career, on May 29, 2006, he stole second base in the fourth inning, after which Atlanta Braves television announcer Don Sutton said he looked "like a big buffalo running around the bases." The observation was appropriate due to Kemp`s imposing size and surprisingly fast footspeed. The nickname was modified to "The Bison," by the commenter D4P on the popular Dodger blog, Dodger Thoughts, as it is a more proper term for the North American mammal to which the moniker refers.Kemp resides in Los Angeles during the off season and is a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan. He is close friends with former Laker Trevor Ariza of the Houston Rockets. He is also good friends with Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim center fielder Torii Hunter. His current at-bat music is The Boss by Rick Ross.
He is rumored to be dating R&B/Pop superstar Rihanna.
