From his start at Power Memorial High School in New York City (when he was known as Lew Alcindor) to his retirement as the NBA’s all-time leader in nine major statistical categories, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar dominated basketball.
The 7-foot-2 Abdul-Jabbar established himself as one of basketball’s most talented players and his trademark “skyhook” shot gave him a scoring advantage that few defenders could stop. At UCLA, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar guided the Bruins to three consecutive NCAA titles (1967-69) under the tutelage of legendary coach John Wooden, and he was the first player to be named the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player three times.
His amazing college career led to bigger and brighter things in the NBA when the Milwaukee Bucks made him the #1 overall pick in the 1969 draft. Named NBA Rookie of the Year, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar became an instant force in the league and won the MVP award six times in his career. Traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1976, he helped the Lakers earn five NBA championships and was part of a great rivalry with Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics.
