The greatest center in NBA history played his final regular season NBA game on April 23rd, 1989. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar started for the Los Angeles Lakers, in his 1,560th career regular season NBA game, against the Seattle Super Sonics at the Great Western Forum. Abdul-Jabbar started and played 26 minutes, scoring 10 points on 5-6 shooting with 6 boards, 3 assists, and a blocked shot. These points brought Abdul-Jabbar to an unassailable record of 38,387 NBA points, which stands today by nearly 1,500 points over Karl Malone’s career mark.
