LeBron James didn’t want to share his thoughts on and relationship with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. LeBron ignored the question and I think he wanted to avoid being in the news with his answer to the ignored question.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has delivered some scathing takes on players in various sports, with his sights usually set on NBA players. Abdul-Jabbar recently called out Kyrie Irving, referring to him as a “comical buffoon.” Before that, the legendary former Lakers player called out LeBron James over his vaccine stance. Now, LeBron James has responded to a question about the player, noting they have no connection to one another.
When asked about his chance of reaching the top of the all-time scoring record, which Abdul-Jabbar leads, the question shifted towards thoughts on the player. He was asked does he have any thoughts on Kareem and if he had a relationship with Abdul-Jabbar. James shrugged off the question, saying, “Nah. No thoughts. And no relationship.” As of now, LeBron James is the second NBA all-time leading scorer, with 37,062 points over 1,366 games played.
Kareem has been critical of LeBron in the past.
“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.”
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.”
