    Damn. Best of luck to Kareem. He's really opened up the last few years, and that's been fun to see. Seems like a good dude -- and he must be, after dragging Walton and Lanier up the court for so long. (obligatory reference.)

    And you know he never tried, except during the playoffs. :)

    On a more serious note, prayers go out to Kareem. Fight the good fight.

    Just curious: Why "Laker great"?
    Is he no longer big enough to be known simply as "Kareem"?
    All the best to the big fella.

    I thought it was going to be about Michael Cooper, or Orlando Woolridge or something, to be honest.

    Maybe he didn't want people to think it was the former UCLA/Dolphins running back.

    Shirley, you can't be serious.

    Best wishes to someone who deserves far more than Laker great in the thread title.

    Possibly the second-greatest NBA player of all time.

    I hope he gets through this.
  11. It's a good thing he changed his name, as I don't know if the NY Post could have helped itself from a "Lew-kemia" headline.
