When and if LeBron James becomes the all-time top scorer in the National Basketball Association, a potentially awkward change of guard is about to come. Because the person he will surpass is co-Lakers legend Karim Abdul-Jabbar, who will use an occasion today to knock James again.
Abdul-Jabbar was handing over the new Karim Abdul-Jabbar Trophy to James’s teammate Carmelo Anthony as the NBA’s Social Justice Champion for the 2020-21 season before today’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
It was then that he again took up the matter in public with James. Abdul-Jabbar has already set a record against James several times this season.
James is the second-highest-scoring scorer in the NBA. It is expected that he will become the all-time leader next season unless injury intervenes.
However, Abdul-Jabbar said he had no problem hitting James’ record in court. However, he got into trouble with what happened when the ball stopped bouncing.
Abdul-Jabbar said, “Some of what he did and said is really below him, as far as I can see.” “He’s done something great, he’s almost standing on either side of the fence, you know?” It makes it harder for me to accept it when he commits himself to everything separately. It is difficult to understand where he stands. You have to check him every time. “
The latest issue revolves around an off-color dance by James after a late goal in an overtime win against the Indiana pacers. Dancing accentuates the activity below the waist.
“Winning is enough for me,” Abdul-Jabbar said in a video posted via the subscription commentary website Substack in early December. “Why do you have to do a silly, childish dance and disrespect the other party in court? It doesn’t make any sense. Goats don’t dance. “
Abdul-Jabbar also criticized a James meme where three identical Spider-Man characters were pointing at each other, labeled “COVID,” “cold,” and “flu.”
