Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Would Like To Coach UCLA (Video)


For UCLA and NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last night to talk about the his participation in the ABC TV show “Splash,” and everything else going on in his life.

Kimmel of course asked the UCLA alum about their coaching situation and whether or not he would be interested in coaching the Bruins.

Abdul-Jabbar responded stated that he “certainly would be interested in coaching the team.” His goal as a coach would be to restore history, and teach the young Bruins basketball, and help them get their degrees.”

Kareem’s only coaching experience was as a special assistant to Phil Jackson and the Lakers, and he coach the USBL Oklahoma Storm.

One thought on “Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Would Like To Coach UCLA (Video)

  • Kareem Abdul Jabbar was a athlete who grew up during the Muhammad Ali, Sam Cooke, Jim Brown, Black Panther era. He did alot for the black community, and that is why he was shunned by the NBA and the United States for so many years. On the opposite side, black men like OJ, Magic, Jordan and Charles Barkley did little to nothing for us while bending over backwards for the whites. That’s why they’re honored and rewarded by the NBA and mainstream America. In conclusion, if any rich black person uses his or her money to help enrich and educate the black community, there will be reprocussions! That is why most rich black people don’t give back. The people who own this country don’t want us to succeed!
