Kareem of the crop

Posted in sports with tags on April 30, 2008 by artofpeace

I’m from Los Angeles. Out here we watch the Lakers. With all the seriousness going on in the world, you have to revel in the little things that make you happy. The Lakers sweeping the Nuggets this past weekend would fall into this category. As a treat for all you Lakers fans (and haters), there is this great blog on the LAT website by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. His observations on the playoffs are interesting, but his insights about other topics: an interesting review of recent Nina Simone compilation, his reflections on his first playoff series, and even a little throwback youtube post of Marvin Gaye and his thoughts. The Captain has always been an inspiration to me, since I read his autobiography “Giant Steps” back in the day. Check it out when you get a chance.
