    On this day in sports history…

    March 20, 1990: #33 was officially retired. The Los Angeles Lakers retired Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s jersey one year after he announced the end of his NBA career. The storied sky-hooker left the game with more championship rings than fingers on his right hand, and remains the all-time leading NBA scorer (38,387 lifetime points). 

    You might be saying to yourself, “Hey, I wonder what Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is up to these days?”…and we have an update! 65-year-old, 7-foot-2 Kareem made a spectacular bellyflopping debut on ABC’s Splash last night. (Splash is a celebrity diving contest, in case you’re mercifully unaware of its existence).
