Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was on April 16 1947. Who ever new that he would be the greatest basketball player in the NBA? Kareem scored the most points like no NBA player scored, blocked more shots, won more Most Valuable Player Awards and played in more All-Star Games. No player achieved as much individual and team success as did Abdul-Jabbar. During his time in the NBA, he was the tallest person. Everyone was surprised of his height, so Kareem kept on sky hooking the ball because no one can tip or block the ball. His is known for the move called “Sky Hook.” At the end of this post, there will be a short clip on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s NBA career and his sky hook.
Miami Coach Pat Riley, who coached Kareem, said, “Why judge anymore? When a man has broken records, won championships, endured tremendous criticism and responsibility, why judge? This quote means a lot to me because it is saying not to judge people no matter what accomplishments they have done because they already educed many criticism. This is how I interpret it, if someone that is judging you, then they are jealous of you and they wished they were like you. I had an experience just like this in my English class when my group judged me and they thought I couldn’t do anything to help for our english project. I ignored them and I built my own, and now it is the best project in class. No matter how much someone judges you, just ignore them because violence is never the answer.
This is my English project where this was the best in my class. The idea is to take a book from there and then leave one. Then the process keeps on going.
