Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rumors
The L.A. Times Sports staff revealed the results of that ambitious question. Their experts only looked at players who played at least 100 games with the franchise. Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, and Shaquille O’Neal topped the list. One player who felt like he was shorted, however, was Nick “Swaggy P” Young. He tweeted: “The hate is real why ya’ll hate me but love me..” after the results of the poll were posted online.

Club Shay Shay: . @thejohnsalley defends Kyrie Irving against Kareem’s comments on his education and talks Kanye: “Kareem was out of bounds for what he said on Kyrie.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Robin Lopez became the first active player to take some sort of action denouncing Irving’s actions. While Lopez did not formerly issue a statement, his Twitter activity has made clear his stance on the issue. Former NBA player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s latest column includes a criticism on Irving and Lopez retweeted that column.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Honestly, there’s little hope that [Kyrie Irving] will change because he’s insulated by fame and money and surrounded by yes-people. There is no motivation to learn how to distinguish propaganda from facts. All that’s left is for the world to decide how it should respond to him.
