The 7′ 2″ Blogger
Plenty of famous people blog, most of them not as tall as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The 50-year old retired NBA star will clank away at the keyboard (or his assistant will) for the LA Times. Among the topics he plans to cover: Black history, sports, entertainment, fitness, and politics.
The legendary #33 wants you to know that he’ll be “writing these blogs myself and only have help uploading them.”
Expected to blog five days a week, I wonder how much the man who once played a pilot in Airplane! is being paid for his thoughts.
One thing’s for sure, it’s a lot more than you or I get for freelancing. But at least we know that the former center will offer a fresh perspective.
“I’ve just recently become familiar with blogging and have never blogged before, nor read any blogs.”
Really? Never? Not even BlogHearld?
I am personally extending an invitation, Kareem.
