Therefore, it is necessary to show regularity during the 6-month competition, and in this game, Karam Abdul Jabbar he is a master at this. First with the Milwaukee Bucks and then with the Los Angeles Lakers, the pivot put the entire defense at his mercy with a hook shot. The unstoppable Lew Alcindor, whose real name is Lew Alcindor, has been named the MVP of the season 6 times and dominates the NBA charts. Two more legends follow him closely behind, Bill Russell and Michael Jordan. If the center of the Celtics was the leader of the Celtics of the 1960s, MJ in turn took basketball to another dimension.
