Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Basketball Journey

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's basketball bio

Also known as Lew Alcindor, before converting to Islam, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the most dominant athletes of all time. His domination started in high school, where he averaged more than 20 points and 20 rebounds per game, winning 90 of the 96 games he played with Power Memorial High School in New-York. Under the mentoring of coach Donohue, Jabbar led his team to an impressive 71 game winning streak.

The 7'2" center left New York for Los Angeles in 1966 to join UCLA. With coach John Wooden, Jabbar won three NCAA championships in three seasons. He dunked so often than the NCAA banned the dunk in 1967 ! The ban was rescinded in 1976.

6 time NBA champion

In 1969, Jabbar was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the first pick in the NBA draft. Teammed with All-Star guard, and triple-double machine, Oscar Robertson, Jabbar won his first NBA championship in 1971. He was named MVP of the NBA Finals. After five seasons with the Bucks, Abdul-Jabbar was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, in 1975. He was joined four years later by Magic Johnson with whom he won 5 NBA championships in 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988.

Jabbar retired in 1989 and is still the all-time leader in points scored in the NBA (38387 points). He also ranks third all-time in rebounds (17440) and blocks (3189). He was enshrined in the Naismith All of Fame as a member of the class of 1995.
