Ferdinand Lewis (Lew) Alcindor Jr., aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, may have had a more complete basketball career than anyone before or since. After thoroughly dominating in the high school ranks in the early 60s, the 7'2" Alcindor decided to attend UCLA in 1966. Because NCAA regulations forbade freshmen from playing a varsity sport, Alcindor was forced to watch the UCLA basketball team from the stands in his first year. During the next three years however, he would show the world just how ridiculous a rule that was as he led his UCLA Bruins to three consecutive NCAA tournament championships from 67-69. In 1967 and 1969 he was voted College Player of the Year by a myriad of organizations and what is more, the rising star was named the tournament's most valuable player in each year that he played in it. Needless to say Alcindor was a hot commodity after his UCLA days, and he went first overall to the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1969 NBA draft. He received Rookie of the Year accolades in 1970 as he single-handedly made a winner out of the Bucks. Just a year later with new teammate Oscar Robertson, he led the surging Bucks to an NBA title and won both the league MVP and the scoring title in only his second year in the league. 1971 was also the year that Alcindor converted to Islam, changing his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, which means "noble, powerful servant." In 1975 Abdul-Jabbar took his patented "sky-hook" to the Los Angeles Lakers and during the next 14 years he won five championships with that Laker dynasty. His career statistics are remarkable and include six league MVPs, 19 All-Star appearances, 38,387 points (first all-time) and 15,837 field-goals made (first all-time). On the front left tail of this jersey is the "SAND KNIT" manufacturer's tag with jersey size "42" on it. Across the front of the jersey is "UCLA." Below that and on the back is the player number "33." All lettering and numbering is done in yellow on white tackle twill. The jersey shows game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind.
