Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rips LeBron James for ‘childish’ behavior
One elder NBA statesman is not pleased with LeBron James’ antics.
“For me, winning is enough,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance.”
Abdul-Jabbar is one of the most well-respected, dignified athletes of all-time and is certainly qualified to speak on the subject of GOAT behavior. As a six-time champion who won the most MVPs in league history and is also the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, Abdul-Jabbar let his game speak for itself.
While Abdul-Jabbar is more than happy to show love to James for his play, it is all the extracurricular horseplay that Abdul-Jabbar clearly believes is unbecoming of a player of James’ magnitude.
