Abdul-Jabbar is the Greatest Of All Time

With all this talk of the greatest basketball players of all-time emerging as the NBA Finals gets started, younger generations have forgotten about the real G.O.A.T., UCLA Basketball’s Lew Acindor, aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

People generally throw around the term G.O.A.T., which is an acronym for “greatest of all time.” What most people do is focus on the first letter and forget about the last three, “of all time”. This is a common mistake especially when considering modern players, but if we were to analyze who the greatest of all time really is, there is only one person that comes to mind… former UCLA basketball player Lew Alcindor, who is also known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

When talking about some of the greatest from past generations, younger critics have not seen or barely know about those that came before modern legends. Those who have seen some of the greatest from decades ago, know exactly why they will remain in the conversation as “greatest of all time”.

For those of us that were around to see Kareem Abdul-Jabbar play, know exactly why he in fact is the definitive G.O.A.T.

When using this acronym, many people only refer to modern professional players like LeBron James. Others reference a player who was big in the 80s and 90s, Michael Jordan. But if you take time to analyze all players across time and what they did in high school, college and the pros, you need not look further than “The Captain”.

Even though several players have carved themselves into NBA lore, they weren’t necessarily successful in high school or college. Kareem was great on all three levels.

-----------


Power Memorial....HS..95-6

UCLA..College ...88-2

may isa pang basehan pagka GOAT mod miron? 6 out of 6 ba siya sa FINALS? I mean hindi ba siya natalo in a Final series? Joke lang... :peace: :peace: :lol: :)

parang Jordan A vs Jordan B? :?: :?: :shock:

Seriously, No doubt Kareem's name would always be in the conversation when we talk about GOAT in basketball... 8) :beer:
As of now, I'll throw 3 names as the GOAT. (Jordan, Rusell, Kareem).

he he he


me mga iba naman na pede rin gamitin. like

2nd yr palang champion na
8 finals in a decade ( 80's )

like i mean he's 183 wins and and 8 losses before entering NBA..

55% FG for 20 yrs..that's fcken insanely efficient for that long..

its the authors take on the goat thing and i just happen to agree with him( if i am forced to name a goat).. If you have Jordan or Russell then no problem i can respect that :D

incidentally Wilt's career average is 30.1 pts and 22.9 rebs......he plays like a PBA import in the NBA :lol:
and he doesnt even get a mention :shock:

kanya-kanyang preference kasi mod, I would not be surprised if LBJ's name would also be included in the discussion of the GOAT.
as of now, 9 Finals appearances.
Naka 8 straight Finals na rin siya (2010-2011 season thru 2017-2018 season) and still counting, baka nga mag 10 straight Finals pa eh... :) :D 8)

wala naman problema. :D

sabi nga "our take"

Tim Duncan also needs to be somewhere inside top 10.

Kareem, Russell and Jordan are my TOP 3 in order

in no order ... these guys

Magic, Bird, Lebron, Duncan, Big O, Wilt , Kobe and Shaq

yes mod, "my take" naman:

Jordan, Russell, Kareem are my TOP 3 in no order.

just like yours, following them in no order as well are:
Kobe, Lebron, Bird, Magic, Shaq, Wilt, Duncan, Big O, Hakeem

after them still in no order are:
Scottie Pippen, Jerry West, Moses Malone, Dirk Nowitski, John Havlicek, Walt Frazier, David Robinson, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Curry

but this list may change in due time, names can be added and some in the current list may be elevated to the next higher tier. who knows after their respective careers, LBJ's name would be in the same tier of (Jordan, Russell and Kareem). Steph Curry may be elevated to the tier of (Kobe, Magic, etc.) and KD's name would be included in the list.

8) 8) 8) :beer: :celebrate:

I agree...

I actually have Wilt Chamberlain, or KAJ, as the GOAT.....

Wilt's numbers are truly astounding.....

But I'm ok with Kareem as the GOAT as well....

pwedeng mapantayan or malampasan ni Lebron yan (Finals appearances) , lalo na kapag mag stay siya sa East (Cavs/Sixers)... :) :D :) :lol:

Kapag lilipat kasi siya sa West, mahihirapan makaabot sa Finals lalo na kung (Warriors/Rockets/Pelicans/Spurs) makakatapat nya in the earlier rounds... :( :) :lol:
