Congratulations to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on His New Statue

Kareem Abdul-JabaarThe statue-makers of Greater Los Angeles are on alert! Kareem is getting his statue! Just like he asked for! Sure, they could cast the image of Kareem perfectly executing a skyhook outside of Staples Center. But wouldn’t the statue of Chick Hearn get tired of seeing that? There’s only one image you can possibly choose here!
