Yesterday Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had a commentary in the Los Angeles Times about politics and the Olympics. In “Abdul-Jabbar looks back on Mexico 1968 Olympics,” Mr. Abdul-Jabbar recounts his experience as a 20-year old during the tumultuous times of that earlier Olympics year. Given my long-standing interest in sport and admiration for Mr. Abdul-Jabbar, I find those recollections worth reading. But, where Mr. Abdul-Jabbar goes with his observations make these comments even more worth reading. Read his commentary here.
