Today’s Topic: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
On April 5, 1985, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sank a 12-foot skyhook against the Kansas City Kings to up his career scoring total to 31,420 points and pass Wilt Chamberlain for the top spot on the NBA All-Time scoring list.
It was a memorable moment in a career filled with them for Abdul-Jabbar, and we take this Thursday to look back at many of these moments from his incredible NBA career.
