Abdul-Jabbar, Kareem Signed/Framed 16x20 JSA COA

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (born Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor; April 16, 1947) is an American retired basketball player, coach, actor and author. During his 20-year professional career in the NBA, from 1969 to 1989, he scored the highest points total of any player in league history (38,387), in addition to winning a record six Most Valuable Player Awards and six NBA championships. He was known for his "skyhook" shot, which was famously difficult to block because it put his 7'2" body between the basket and the ball. Abdul-Jabbar's success began well before his professional career; in college at UCLA, he played on three championship teams, and his high school team won 71 consecutive games. In his NBA career, he played for the Milwaukee Bucks for six seasons and then with the Los Angeles Lakers for fourteen seasons. Abdul-Jabbar (Alcindor at the time) grew up in Manhattan, New York City, the son of Cora Lillian, a department store price checker, and Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor, Sr., a police officer and jazz musician. In 1971, several years after converting to Islam, he changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Since retiring from basketball, he has been known as an author, coach and actor. This color 16x20 comes with a JSA Certificate of Authenticity.
