Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has a senior moment on Jeopardy

Last night on Jeopardy, NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was doing pretty well…until he was asked what should have been the easiest question of them all. Not only does Kareem forget his famous line from Airplane! – He also never played for Portland.

Here’s the original scene.

The question was not worded in a manner that the answer would be automatically Bill Walton. It was a quote that was originally made by Kareem and he assumed that was the answer…himself!!! He was the one who dragged Bill Walton and Bob Lanier up and down the floor during those games, thus, he was the one who made the quote. This led to his answer that he gave. Its unfortunate that it is implied as a senior moment. My GOD, for pete’s sake, grow up and report both sides of this, please!!!
