The Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wore this yellow Los Angeles Lakers uniform during the 1987-88 NBA season. This was Abdul-Jabbar’s 19th and penultimate NBA season, and the former UCLA star started 80 games for the 62-20 Lakers. Kareem scored 14.6 points per game for Pat Riley’s Lakers, adding 6 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game as he helped lead Los Angeles to the Pacific Division title. The Lakers defeated the Spurs, Jazz, and Mavericks in the Western Conference Playoffs to set up an NBA Finals matchup against the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons. With the Lakers facing elimination in Game 6, Abdul-Jabbar nailed two clutch free throws with 14 seconds left to give the Lakers a 103-102 victory at The Forum. The Lakers won Game 7 108-105, giving Abdul-Jabbar the sixth and final title of his storied career.
