A Sports Celebrity Booking Agency

call to book a sports celebrity 1.888.246.7141

This off-season for the Lakers has been one for the records books as they have assembled quite possibly one of the best rosters in team history. The Los Angeles Lakers have also been busy building the statue for  the Hall of Fame Center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar which will be revealed some time during the 2012-13 season.

This statue doesn’t come without a little drama as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar publicly criticized the Lakers last year, believing the failure to erect a statue of him sooner was a show of disrespect. Similarly, he lamented the Lakers not awarding him playoff shares, and pointed to his reduced role and pay as a special assistant coach for Andrew Bynum from 2005 to 2011. Abdul-Jabbar also mentioned how he often had to sit on the back of the plane on team trips.

AEG, which owns Staples Center, plays a larger role in determining who is honored with a statue at the venue (others include Oscar De La Hoya and Wayne Gretzky) and when it is done.

Abdul-Jabbar remains the NBA’s all-time leading scorer (38,387 points). He won Five of his Six NBA titles and Three of his Six league MVPs with the Los Angeles Lakers. His high scoring rate and mastery of the sky-hook established him as one of the best centers of all time.
