Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rumors
Justin Kubatko: Players who have won at least one NBA MVP Award for two different teams: * Wilt Chamberlain * Kareem Abdul-Jabbar * Moses Malone * LeBron James No player has ever done so for three different teams.
Mike Bresnahan: What role did LeBron have in Lakers signing Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo? “I learned from Dr. Buss that you should always include (star) players,” Magic said. “When (former GM) Jerry West thought about bringing a player in, Dr. Buss would call me, call Kareem.”
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: I am sure the Lakernation is rejoicing The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders. Congrats to @Magic Johnson & @LALakersLive et al. Cross your fingers for news from San Antonio.
Robertson grew up in a segregated housing project in Indianapolis and dealt with racial discrimination and economic inequality. Robertson played in a generation when stars like Abdul-Jabbar and Russell fought for social change and were outspoken about civil rights. “Years ago, they [athletes] didn’t say anything because they couldn’t say anything,” the 12-time All-Star and former MVP said.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Great evening at The NBA Awards @NBAOfficial it was my honor to give Oscar Robertson the Lifetime Achievement Award & share this moment with my hero the great Bill Russell.
B/R: Is legacy only about rings? LeBron has been to eight straight Finals—no one has done that since the 1960s Celtics. Doesn’t that mean something? Isiah Thomas: He’s been able to dominate this era, going to the Finals for nine of the 15 years. In my lifetime, I’ve never seen this. And I’ve played against Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, played against Michael Jordan. I don’t think any of us have ever seen anything like what we’re witnessing.
