Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Blasts LeBron James, Says He “Should Be Embarrassed”


NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has never been one to mince his words – not during his active playing career, and certainly not after.

Kareem is outspoken on many topics and doesn’t shy away when it comes to voicing his opinion.

This is also the reason Jabbar has frequently criticized LeBron James in this past year.

Before the season started Abdul-Jabbar voiced his opinion on the vaccination status of certain players, while encouraging as many people as possible to get their shots, also urging the NBA to insist that all players and staff are vaccinated, or else, removed from the team, and also went at LeBron James for supporting Andrew Wiggins, who at that time, didn’t want to get the vaccine.

The Lakers legend then went at LeBron James again, and absolutely destroyed him over his Covid-19, Spiderman meme post.

Yesterday, when talking to Ben Golliver, Abdul-Jabbar praised LeBron for his I PROMISE school project, but also criticized him, saying that James should be “embarrassed” about some of his actions that have included his past COVID-19 comments. Jabbar added that he would like to sit down with LeBron and discuss their differences.


I wouldn’t mind doing it if he would take the time. I definitely got the time. I admire the things that he’s done that have gotten all our attention. Sending a whole school to college? Wow. That’s amazing. His thoughtfulness and willingness to back it up with his wallet, you got to give him credit for that.

So I’m not throwing stones. I just wish he wouldn’t — you know, some of the things he’s done, he should be embarrassed about. That’s just where I’m coming from.
