Biography

Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee 1995

For three years, UCLA's Lew Alcindor was the most dominant force in college basketball. His shot blocking and rebounding skills, along with a devastating "skyhook", helped Coach John Wooden's Bruins win three National Championships. During that run, Alcindor became the only man to be selected as a three-time NCAA Tournament "Most Outstanding Player". In 1971, he converted to Islam, taking the name Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (meaning "noble, powerful servant"). In 1996, he was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.
