Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Moves to the Dark Side

The State Department has announced that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with NBA Hall-of-Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to discuss his new role as a global "Cultural Ambassador."

Jabbar desperately wanted to be an NBA coach, but word around the league was that he didn't have the talent to be a coach, and on top of that he was a trouble maker. Which means he is probably well suited for the State Dept.


  1. Boy.....what a title......a "global" cultural ambassador.

    I guess "local" is on the up'n'up....Who knew?

    The hubris is off the charts.

  2. yeah, but he made a great co-pilot....

  3. Lew Alcindor/Kareem did those (bad) beer commercials in the 90s which of course is evidence of unclear thinking.

  4. I wonder how much he paid for that title or was it something as simple as "hey I'm planning a lot of international travel in 2012" and Clinton saying "How would you like to travel for free?". My guess is the former and that you will see his name attached to a DNC contribution.

  5. Title of this post cracked me up - Darth Jabbar.

  6. Sky Hook basketball culture.
    Hitlery is a vapid cow.
