Abdul-Jabbar was also selected to 19 NBA All-Star Games and is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer with a total of 38,387 points. He was known for his leadership on the court and his sheer dominance in the paint on both ends. The UCLA Bruin will forever be remembered for his sky hook, a shot that could not be stopped.
