The Milwaukee Bucks haven’t had that great of a season and are tanking the hardest out of all the other NBA teams to try and get the best odds at the No. 1 pick. But while the team hasn’t had anything noteworthy happen to them recently, a legend of the game is ready and willing to return home and help his former team.
According to Andrew Wagner of the Associated Press, Kareem Adbul-Jabbar has expressed an interest in returning to the Bucks in some capacity.
“If I get a call, I will definitely offer my services,” said Abdul-Jabbar, the franchise’s career leading scorer with 14,211 points. “There’s nothing on the table right now. A couple of people have asked me and if I had the chance to be part of this franchise again, I would take it.”
It’s often forgotten by causal NBA fans that Abdul-Jabbar started his career with the Bucks back in 1969, as his days with the Los Angeles Lakers are more iconic. Still, he’s been at odds with the Lakers over what he sees as a lack of respect and his willingness to rejoin the Bucks signifies that more than anything.
