NBA legend Karim Abdul-Jabbar has revealed that he would interested in returning to the franchise he served so famously for a large part of his career; the Milwaukee Bucks.
At the back end of last year Bucks owner Herb Kohl said that he would seeking investors in the franchise he has owned since 1985, and it would appear that his call for help has not fallen on deaf ears. Not with the team’s greatest ever player anyhow.
Abdul-Jabbar enjoyed mass success with the Bucks from 1969 until 1975, and his personal record speaks for itself.
Milwaukee might not be having the rub of the green of late - they current hold the worst record in the league, 12-47 - but they may just have the backing of one of the most influential centers to have ever played the game.
“'If I get a call, I will definitely offer my services,'' said Abdul-Jabbar, who managed a franchise record-breaking 14,211 points during his time with the Bucks.
''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 remains to be seen exactly what capacity Abdul-Jabbar would take up were he to return, but his introduction would most certainly be beneficial to the current team.
