Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Rumors
Sean Grande: And yet another LeBron milestone. Tonight, he passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for 2nd on the all-time scoring list against Boston (regular season and playoffs). He’ll likely pass Jerry West for the top spot in Game 4 Monday. pic.twitter.com/cHe1Dd5IWa
Micah Adams: This is LeBron’s 13th straight top-5 finish in MVP voting, breaking a tie with Kareem for the longest streak in NBA history. Now has unequivocally the longest sustained peak ever.
JLEIII: Who guards Durant? Rick Mahorn: On that team? C’mon. You put Dennis Rodman, you put “The Worm” on him, you put me on him. You know what’s funny? A lot of people don’t realize that we were multi-talented enough to switch. … The only one that couldn’t move his feet was (Bill) Laimbeer, but we knew that. The thing is, I had to check guys like Doctor J and Barkley, James Worthy one night, and then Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This is what I can do because I had quick feet. As a player, you have to understand the whole game. It’s not like you’re limiting yourself, like, “Oh, he can only do this.” Can I shoot from outside? I didn’t have to. That wasn’t my job.
