Correct, it is a dynamite read, thanks for posting and sharing. Aside, Kareem got writing skills, knew about him reading a lot, even his book, but this piece was really done creatively.
The thing about Jabbar, well first off, you're absolutely right about his writing skills. They are first-rate. But most of all, his intelligence shows through.... which is what makes his thoughts and perspective so compelling. They are not the musings of someone in the grip of emotionalism or with something to prove. He dissects the matter thoroughly, even to the point of comparing Stiviano's taping of their conversations to NSA wire-tapping. Every word he wrote contributes to the conversation.
For sure, based on his intellect, he's a phenomenal writer. And, he's been my role model/idol since he was born, Lew Alcindor. On a side bar note, I never thought I'd see anyone block his "sky hook" until Chamberlain did it, what a sight it was.
