Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on How Some of The Things LeBron Does is Beneath Him and Embarrassing

Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in a video, has criticized some of LeBron James’ actions, and according to him via ESPN, some of the LeBron has done are below him. He expects him to do things like a king, as he’s been nicknamed.

“Some of the things he’s done and said are really beneath him, as far as I can see. Some of the great things that he’s done, he’s standing on both sides of the fence almost, you know? It makes it hard for me to accept that when he’s committed himself to a different take on everything. It’s hard to figure out where he’s standing. You’ve got to check him out every time.”

According to the news outlet;

Abdul-Jabbar, on hand to present James’ teammate, Carmelo Anthony, with the newly designed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Trophy to honor Anthony as the NBA’s Social Justice Champion for the 2020-21 season, has already voiced his disappointment in James several times this season.

After James celebrated a late-game 3 in an overtime win against the Indiana Pacers by mimicking the dance that former NBA All-Star Sam Cassell made popular, accentuating his nether regions, Abdul-Jabbar was pointed in his disapproval.

“For me, winning is enough,” Abdul-Jabbar said in a video posted through Substack, a subscription commentary website, in early December. “Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance.”

Later that month, Abdul-Jabbar took aim at James once again after the four-time MVP shared a Spider-Man meme to his Instagram account showing three identical Spider-Man characters pointing at one another, affixed with the labels “COVID,” “cold,” and “flu.”

Abdul-Jabbar wrote on Substack that the social media post was a “blow to his worthy legacy” because the “implication is that LeBron doesn’t understand the difference among these three illnesses, even after all the information that’s presented in the press.”

You can’t expect LeBron to be perfect. He is done an excellent job for 19 years of being a good ambassador for the game and people in general.
