Simply put, Lew Alcindor (aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) is an NBA legend. He played 20 seasons for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers, won 6 championships as a player, two-time finals MVP, was named MVP a record six times, a 19-time NBA All-Star, and without question, a top 5 player of all time. According to all-time player rankings by Bleacher Report, ESPN, Complex, and CBS Sports, Kareem ranks in the top 3.
If you ask any long time fan of the NBA for a signature move that is linked to a player, they will likely either mention the Allen Iverson crossover or the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar skyhook. Yet, if you ask a fan under 30, most are unaware of what he means to the game!
