Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is an American former professional basketball player. He originally played for the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association. This great basketball player dominated the basketball court in the ’60s and ’70s. At that time, his opponent did not have the height to stand in front of him.

Karim Abdul is a great inspiration for any basketball player standing today. The level he set in the old days of basketball is still difficult for many famous basketball players to reach. However, I would also like to point out that he once held the NBA Most Valuable Player record six times in his career. Not only that, he is the only player to have been a member of 6 NBA Championship teams.

Early Life and Careers of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

The height that worked for his career on the upper graph, the height again made him listen to his childhood. In fact, as a child, he was taller than boys of his age. As a result, everyone’s ridicule and comments were directed at him. Although he had vowed to himself that he would make such arrangements that people would praise him for the height that was required to be heard. And because of this, he started to establish himself in basketball while still in high school.

Personal Life and Education of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

When the basketball player was born, he weighed 12 pounds. And gradually as he grew older he became much taller than other children. Likewise, this factor was largely responsible for keeping him depressed as a child. However, he did not give up and began to exploit his height in high school to excel in basketball. Not only that, the team he played basketball for won the National High School Boys Basketball Championship.

10 things about him:

The 7-footman made his case for the greatest scorer in basketball history early in high school.

Similarly, he led his high school team to a 71-game winning streak.

When he first stepped onto the field, he definitely won everyone’s hearts with his basketball skills. But it didn’t end there, Kareem also set a UCLA scoring record in his debut game.

This basketball player has been the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for an amazing six consecutive years.

Not only that but he was drafted first overall by the net in the ABA.

His play made it seem like he wasn’t born for basketball, but rather that basketball was born for him.

His prowess in basketball is so outstanding that he is offering a million dollars to play for the Globetrotters.

The meaning behind his Arabic name Karim Abdul Jabbar was the great man and servant of the Almighty.

Karim did a movie with Bruce Lee called Game of Death.

Not all close people are your friends and this is rightly proved in Abdul’s case. Because his financial advisor stole $9 million from him

Money factor: Salary and Endorsement Fees:

Of course, as it stands today, he received no salary whatsoever for playing. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t get any salary in any way. Because he has earned a lot of money since playing as a coach. But the career graph in terms of upward coaching was not as high as he thought.

Salary$3 million
Endorsements$2 million

Relationships and Family:

Although they are now divorced, their relationship was once very famous. Yes, I am talking about Karim Abdul Jabbar’s wife Habiba Abdul here. Although Habiba was born a Christian, after marriage, she converted to Islam for Karim and for love. And at the same time, it is reported through sources that both of them first met in college.

However, despite being married to Habiba, Karim has feelings for other women which is revealed after their divorce. Even with Habiba’s parents, Karim had some issues that were not resolved in the end. As a result, their marriage, unfortunately, did not last long.

Controversially speaking, Karim Abdul has commented on various topics and his comments have caused controversy by facing different situations at times. For example, Karim recently made controversial comments about a Covid-19 vaccine. And as a result of his comments, people inevitably lash out at him, leading to a nasty incident. Although I have to say that he is not alone, some other people submitted comments.
