Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the model of consistency for two entire decades for fans in the 1970’s and 80’s. Kareem is the all time leading scorer in NBA history.
But that’s just one of his major accomplishments. Kareem played 20 years in the NBA where he had 6 MVP awards, two Finals MVP awards and more. Kareem was known for his famous “sky hook”.
Kareem won three MVP Awards with the Lakers and five titles — the final coming in a season where he played in 80 games and averaged 14.6 points per game at the age of 40.
