Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, to me, is the greatest basketball player of all-time. He was 3-3 in college. He was National college player of the year all three years. Final Four Most Outstanding Player all three years. Somehow, Michael Jordan was voted a better college basketball player than him. He won six NBA titles, he was MVP 6 times, and he was First-Team All Defense five times.If Kareem was five years younger, maybe we would have seen him on primetime television while he was in his prime. If you're going to combine everything...the package is Michael Jordan. He went 6 for 6...If Michael went 4-2 he's not the greatest basketball player of all-time! I can look at high school, college and pros...Kareem is the G.O.A.T." (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Dan Patrick explain why he thinks Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should go down as the greatest basketball player of all time, as he believes Kareem’s resume as a 6-time NBA champion with six MVPs, 19 All-Star appearances, 15 All-NBA teams, 5 All-NBA defensive teams, and his place as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer should make him the clear pick over Michael Jordan or LeBron James.
