Kareem Doesn't Seem To Remember His UCLA Days Very Well...Or What Team He Played For In The NBA
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is arguably one of the best players in basketball history. He was the ultimate winner and scorer in his time at UCLA but that might be all that he is when it comes to UCLA.
Kareem was on Jeopardy yesterday and up came the category "I Went To UCLA". That should be easy enough for one of the most successful UCLA graduates, plus the $400 answer is always the easiest. So Kareem picks it and Alex reads the question:
"Tell your old man to drag this '70s UCLA & Trail Blazer center (& Lanier!) up & down the court for 48 minutes"
Obviously the answer is "Who is Bill Walton?" but not in Kareem's world. The look on his face once Alex sarcastically yells NO! at him is priceless. Kareem also gives us a classic facepalm.
So keep your head up Kareem, I am sure there are lots of former players that don't remember which pro team they played on... right?
