Back Where It All Began? Abdul-Jabbar Eyes Possible Role With Bucks
Published March 4, 2014
SOMETHING OTHER THAN AN OWNERSHIP ROLE? In Milwaukee, Matt Velazquez writes Abdul-Jabbar's statements "made it sound as if he is interested in a future partnership with the Bucks, but not as an investor." Abdul-Jabbar: "I've seen what Larry Bird did down in Indianapolis. He's doing great. He knows how to pick the guys; they know how to play together. ... I would hope that I would get a chance to do some of that and be a valuable asset in terms of the think tank that has to identify talent" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/4).
