Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is calling LeBron James out over his recent behavior.
“Some of the things he’s done and said are really beneath him, as far as I can see,” Abdul-Jabbar said per ESPN. “Some of the great things that he’s done, he’s standing on both sides of the fence almost, you know? It makes it hard for me to accept that when he’s committed himself to a different take on everything. It’s hard to figure out where he’s standing. You’ve got to check him out every time.”

The pair have been back and forth in the public eye, but Abdul-Jabbar says he still respects James.
“If he would take the time, I definitely got the time,” he said. “I admire the things that he’s done that have gotten all our attention. Sending a whole school to college? Wow. That’s amazing. His thoughtfulness and willingness to back it up with his wallet, you got to give him credit for that. So I’m not throwing stones. I just wish he wouldn’t – you know, some of the things he’s done, he should be embarrassed about. That’s just where I’m coming from.”
