Lakers Unveil Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Statue
After years of being so disrespectful to basketball’s GOAT (not debatable, obvs besides LeBron), the Lakers finally unveiled Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s statue along Legend’s row in front of Staples Center.
Kareem now joins an esteemed group of Legend’s, including teammate Magic Johnson and Oscar De La Hoya(s), in front of Staples, with the patented sky hook to forever be immortalized in front of the Lakers home arena — that is until the squad moves to a bigger and badder spot and Staples becomes the new Sports Arena.
Unfortunately in the ultimate sign of hateration, their still isn’t a Clippers statue in front of Staples, although Ken “Snake” Norman or Ralph Lawler are probably the only real option at this point. Just kidding.
