Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rumors
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is having a rough year … the NBA legend got into a car wreck at UCLA yesterday … and TMZ Sports has the pics. Kareem was arriving to UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent quadruple bypass surgery earlier this year, when he got into a collision with another vehicle. Sources connected to the Hall of Famer tell us he’s doing OK — no major injuries — and it appeared the other person in the wreck was also fine.
If this summer goes the other way, and this turns out to be it for Duncan, Daniels has a feeling how that will play out, too. “He’s not going to be like Kareem and go out on a big retirement tour,” Daniels said, referring to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Lakers Hall of Famer who retired at age 42. “He’s going to wake up one morning and say, ‘You know what? I don’t have it anymore. I’m done.’”
NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the league’s 68-year-old leading scorer, has survived leukemia, a house fire that destroyed his jazz record collection, and appearances on the television show “Diff’rent Strokes.” And, despite enduring quadruple-bypass surgery earlier this month and a post-op scare earlier today, he is still alive and well. After a brief visit to the hospital this morning, Abdul-Jabbar was sent home. “He contacted his physicians who told him to come to the emergency department at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center,” read a statement posted by the hospital on its Facebook page. “He was evaluated by his surgeon and cardiologist. After a battery of tests, they found no complications.”
