Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Slam Dunks a Pumpkin! Shouts Out Billy Corgan's Alt-Rock Crew!
Did you know that 64-year-old NBA legend and leukemia survivor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar can still jam? Well, neither did Crossfade till we saw this new vid of the Jabman slam dunking a pumpkin!
At first, we wondered if the old man had lost his prescription goggles and mistaken the giant orange gourd for a basketball. But then at the end of the video, he shouted out Billy Corgan's alt-rock crew ("Check out the new Smashing Pumpkins album Oceania") and we realized it was just a really random cross-promotional publicity stunt.
See the cut to watch Kareem smash a pumpkin on the b-ball court.
