There aren’t many players that had the same sort of impact on the game of basketball as one Lew Alcindor.
Alcindor’s dominance on the court was evident early on, as he won three NCAA championships with the UCLA Bruins and then six NBA championships with the Bucks and LA Lakers.
Not only was Alcindor a great basketball player, but a prominent cultural figure for the African American community.
Alcindor boycotted the 1968 Summer Olympics due to the unequal treatment of black players. He also changedhis name to Kareem Abdul-Jabaar in 1971 as a testament of his faith and to stand up for black Americans.

Deal or No Deal Facebook groups annoy me.
They wouldn’t if I didn’t belong to them, but I am a glutton for punishment.
Simply put, DOND listings are generally sucker bets.
