Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wants a statue

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wants a statue, & feels slighted

When the Celtics announced that Bill Russell would receive a statue in Boston, it was a moment a long time coming for a player who didn’t always have the best relationship with the city he helped put on the NBA map. Russell has had his issues with Boston in the past, but a long rehabilitation process has healed those wounds. The statue is an honor that everyone can agree on.

It has also gotten more people talking about which retired stars deserve statues. Public outcry generally did not point towards the Lakers giving Kareem Abdul-Jabbar a statue outside of Staples Center. But the former Lakers great feels slighted anyway
