Suddenly it’s impossible to turn on the TV, visit Twitter or listen to L.A. radio without the name Kareem Abdul Jabbar being rammed down our throats. Not that we care. This guy is a walking billboard for what’s right with celebrity/sports. He’ll trash talk the Los Angeles Lakers about wanting a statue. He’ll get into Twitter wars with Scottie Pippen over the greatest NBAers. And he’ll wear those infamous Rec Specs for a Carl’s Jr. commercial with Olivia Munn. But what makes KAJ special is his work with midgets such as this week with Chuy from Chelsea Lately. Like we said, the guy is everywhere.
