About Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
When Kareem Abdul-Jabbar left basketball in 1989, no NBA player had ever scored more points, blocked more shots, won more Most Valuable Player awards, played in more All-Star games or logged more seasons. His list of accomplishments is perhaps the most awesome in league history. Dubbed “History’s Greatest Player” by Time Magazine and “Collegiate Athlete of the 20th Century” by ESPN Abdul-Jabbar is currently serving as a Cultural Ambassador for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and continues his philanthropy through his Skyhook Foundation, which “Gives Kids A Shot That Can’t Be Blocked” by developing an understanding of careers outside of sports and entertainment.
