Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has generally been regarded as a serious-thinking man when it comes to social issues. Then TIME magazine gave him an op ed column, and he proved to be just another clueless liberal. HIs latest column has the unmitigated gall to say that Dr. Ben Carson would be "terrible for black Americans." Really? Seems that no one could be worse for black Americans than Barack Obama and his devastating leftist policies. Kareem also claims that Carson's reluctance to accept the climate change orthodoxy is proof that he would be a bad president. This is too juicy. We will discuss from all angles.
Salim Abdul-Khaliq was born Ron Charles in Chicago, Illinois in 1954. He was born with a constant desire to read, write and study.
In 1974, while in the army, he was positively influenced by a muslim brother named John Sanders, now known as Yahya Abdul Ali-Karriem. He became a mentor to Ron. This mentoring led Ron to do further research and investigation into the faith of Islam and into Malcolm X.
As a young black man Islam gave Ron a profound understanding of God, self knowledge, and African American history. This led to his conversion to Islam in 1974 and later a name change.
The name change is significant and symbolic of a change of consciousness. He is now Salim Abdul-Khaliq. This name means Peaceful Servant of the Creator. In addition, he also gave his daughters Islamic names.
God has enabled Salim Abdul-Khaliq to devote himself full time to his teachings and community activism. He has now opened a bookstore in Chicago, Illinois. Salim opened the bookstore to impress upon African-American people the importance of learning about their great heritage through reading.

Donald Trump loses Iowa and Hillary fails to win it, why, and what it means; Obama to "visit" Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Baltimore mosque; Here come the epic global defaults; France declares passive-aggressive war on Israel; Sarah Palin is becoming Trump's biggest liability; and the wit and wisdom of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The 1984-85 season began with Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers looking up at Larry Bird, MVP of the World Champion Boston Celtics; Bird had dominated the 1984 NBA Finals and willed the Celtics to a comeback victory in 7 games (Boston’s 8th consecutive win over the Lakers in a Championship series), while Magic bore the brunt of his “tragic” performance. Johnson and Coach Pat Riley used the overwhelming negative criticism of Johnson and the Lakers as fuel which propelled Los Angeles back to Boston Garden for a Bird-Magic rematch in the 1985 Finals, but the oldest player on the court would ultimately shine brightest. 35 year old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar would turn back the clock and lead the Lakers back from a demoralizing 34 point loss in game one to the NBA Title in six games, the Lakers becoming the first team to eliminate Boston in a Championship series on their home floor. Abdul-Jabbar’s brilliant performance was rewarded with his second Finals MVP award, a remarkable 14 seasons after his first with the 1971 World Champion Milwaukee Bucks. Steve relieves the 1984-85 regular season and Games 1-4 of a Classic NBA Finals Rematch.

On Jan. 13, 1999, Michael Jordan retired from the NBA a second time. But what if he never left?
His Airness essentially lost two seasons (1993-94, most of 1994-95) when he first walked away to play baseball. Then, after winning his sixth championship with the Chicago Bulls in 1998, he bowed out once more, only to return as a member of the Washington Wizards three years later.
What would have happened if Jordan played through the entirety of each of those five missed or abbreviated seasons? How many titles did he leave on the table? How many league MVP awards should he have won? Would he have shattered Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's all-time scoring record?
Join Adam and Dan as they come to terms with an unsettling, yet unassailable, reality: Already considered the greatest player ever, Michael Jordan left behind an incomplete legacy.
