Most Definetly! The is no denying that Kareem Abdul Jabbar does not get the respect he deserves. He is rarely in conversations for Greatest Player of All time considering the Fact of all his career achievements. He is the All Time LEADING SCORER IN NBA HISTORY! Top 20 All Time in points per game (at 16th for those who wanna check http://www.nba.com...=). Top 3 in total Career Rebounds. He's Also 11th in career Field Goal Percentage shooting 56% from the Floor. Also he is the creator of the most unstoppable move in NBA history, the Sky Hook. But rarely do we see Kareem's name in the greatest of All time conversations. He played through too of the toughest Eras in NBA hisotry. The 70s were the most competivitive era with many team consider title contenders. 8 teams won championships during the 70s. it speaks to the level of Talent in the nba during the era. The 80s all consisted of Multiple Title contenders too. Allthough it was predominately dominated by the lakers and celtcis, each and every playoff series was highly entertaining. Not only did he played in these two eras he excelled. Kareem 6 time MVP, which is the Most in NBA history, 6 time NBA Champion, 2 Time Finals MVP, 19 time all Star, 10 time 1st All NBA team, 5 time All NBA 2nd Team, 5 time All-Defensive first team, 6 time All-Defensive 2nd team, 2 time scoring Champ. Despite all these achievement many do not consider him to be the Greatest. One can also make a case for Oscar Robertson but comparing the two it defintely Kareem over Robertson.
