Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is Chuck D’s hero. Of course, he’s a lot of people’s heroes. He is, after all, indisputably one of the greatest basketball players of all time, with six NBA championships, eight MVP awards and more career points than anyone ever (33,387, to be precise). His jersey number, 33, was retired by his alma mater, UCLA, and both of the pro teams he played for, the Milwaukee Bucks and the L.A. Lakers. But that’s just for starters; learn more about what makes him truly extraordinary on tonight’s powerful season finale of ICONOCLASTS.
