Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rumors

While appearing in an interview on 97.5 The Fanatic Saturday the Lakers legend said that one-and-done players like Ball are bad for college basketball. “One-and-dones doesn’t make any sense to me,” he said. “To have somebody come and be on campus for six months and play a basketball season, what is that? It’s strange and it’s not good for the college game, and it hasn’t been good for the pro game.”
Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar criticized The Bachelorette in a column for The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, writing that the reality show was “killing romance in America.” A part of his problem with the show? It’s complete lack of anything resembling diversity. From his January column: The real crime is the lack of intellectual and appearance diversity, which leaves the contestants as interchangeable as the Mr. Potato Head parts. The lack of racial diversity has already been commented on. If you’re black on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you’re usually kept around as a courtesy for a few weeks before being ejected. Those outside the ideal body fat percentage index need not apply. With all eyes firmly fixed on firm buttocks, the criteria for finding love becomes how high a quarter will bounce off rock-hard abs.
