Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Interested in Bucks

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, also known in the past as Big Lew, is an athlete with many accomplishments to his credit. He is the creator of the deadly basketball move known as the skyhook. And his height is proof of his ability to shoot hoop after hoop with devastating exactness and skill. 

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s killer instincts made his name synonymous with talent and tenacity. He gave the NBA a taste of genius in sportsmanship and stuck around long enough to leave his name behind as a legend. Kareem was with the Milwaukee Bucks for some time and only left reluctantly. 

But in a recent interview, Big Lew spoke of how he was not averse to owning an NBA team for a change. He could even lend his management and leadership capabilities to the Bucks if he wants. 

“Being involved in the business of basketball is something I wouldn’t shy away from,” Abdul-Jabbar said in an exclusive interview with the Milwaukee Business Journal. “But it would have to be a good situation for me. It would depend totally on what the situation was.”

The only difference is that Kareem wants to strike the iron while it is hot. He would never be ready to pick any old franchise and head it just for the sake of bossing around. That would not be a lucrative deal and besides it wouldn’t be a challenging proposition. 

The fact that he wants to lend his lifelong experience towards the betterment of a team of players is proof of his sincerity and integrity. It all lies in the being and becoming of the state that Big Lew finds himself in. 

“Something where I had some equity in the team, so that what I would get an opportunity to benefit from it,” Kareem said.

If the time is ripe for making the plunge, Kareem will say now or never and do or die. But when you think of a team such as the Milwaukee Bucks, which is at its lowest level from the perspective of morale, it would be foolish to hedge your bets in that direction.  

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has acted in the movie Airplane. He is a multitalented and sober individual with a laidback attitude of coolheaded poise. Whatever chance he takes in the times to come will prove fruitful since he is no fool. And nor does he suffer fools gladly.

At long last, the Los Angeles Lakers have their coach for the 2014-15 season.  The hiring process took a long time, even if the man who ended up with the job was widely considered the top candidate for quite a few weeks. But everything became official on Tuesday afternoon, when the organization officially introduced Byron Scott at his introductory press conference.  Everything opened with general manager Mitch Kupchak at the microphone, and he quickly m ...

Which Roy Hibbert Will Indiana Pacers Get Next Season?

Source: Bleacher Report

We saw two versions of Roy Hibbert last season, and the Indiana Pacers should be praying the better one shows up in 2014-15. Their season will depend on it. Rapid, startling declines like the one Hibbert endured last season are rare, and it's hard to pick out the specific spot when things went south. But the difference between the big man's pre- and post-break numbers is stark enough to make the point: Everyon ...

Byron Scott May Not Be L.A. Lakers' Long-Term Answer, but He Doesn't Have to Be

Source: Bleacher Report

It was only a matter of time until Byron Scott became head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, as ESPN's Chris Broussard first reported Scott will soon be. He probably would've been in 2011, when Phil Jackson retired, had Scott not already subsumed himself in the Cleveland Cavaliers' between-two-LeBrons mess.  Three years later, Scott's slip into the Lakers' top job looks more inevitable than ever. He'd already o ...

More to the point, the Purple and Gold will have to decide whether or not to retire his number once his career comes to a close. Gasol’s free-agent status means his days as a Laker might very well be over. In February, he wrote on his website: “My decision will be based purely on sport ...
