In the world of digital media, Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar doesn't want to miss out on telling his side of the story.
As he announced on Friday, he has launched a new podcast with his former teammate Norm Nixon that will feature conversations and guest appearances from former Showtime-era Lakers.
After watching Legacy: The True Story of the Lakers, my friend and former teammate Norm Nixon and I decided to have a video chat about our Showtime days. We discuss Magic Johnson, Pat Riley, our other teammates and a lot more. Talking with Norm about our playing strategies and our amazing teammates really was a delight for both of us.
This is the first in a new series of videochats with my former teammates and coaches, including Jerry West, Michael Cooper, Magic Johnson, Byron Scott, Jamaal Wilkes, James Worthy, Kurt Rambis, Bob McAdoo, and AC Green. You will not want to miss what they have to say about their struggles and triumphs as players and afterward.
This first conversation is available to all subscribers, but the subsequent interviews will be available only to paid subscribers. So, get your skyhook on and subscribe right now.
Kareem has really stepped up lately with his statements and articles. As a champion for civil rights and equal treatment, he often uses his platform as a basketball legend to touch on sensitive topics and speak his mind on pressing issues.
Now, he'll get the chance to go in-depth with his former teammates about one of the greatest eras in basketball history.
It should be a wild ride, and it will be exciting to see what the 6x Champion has in store for us next.
