Kareem Abdul-Jabbar threw a sweet sky hook down on Donald Trump from the podium at the Democratic National Convention. There to introduce the father of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, Abdul-Jabbar introduced himself to the crowd as Michael Jordan, saying snarkily that Trump couldn’t tell them apart. (A painful, but funny, reminder of the “they all look alike” bigotry that still haunts the U.S.)
Abdul-Jabbar has actually been critical of his unlikely doppelganger Jordan, saying in the past that MJ hasn’t done enough for the cause of social justice given his enormous brand and platform. But here’s a hint for Trump. One way to tell the two 6-time NBA champions apart is this: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored more career points (38,387) than Michael Jordan (32,292). And Kareem is half a foot taller.
