Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Aka ‘Michael Jordan’) Roasts Donald Trump At DNC

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rarely demonstrated his funny side during his basketball career, but his sense of humor was on full display Thursday night … at Donald Trump’s expense.

The NBA legend started his speech at the Democratic National Convention by introducing himself as “Michael Jordan.” Abdul-Jabbar told the crowd he did so because Trump, the Republican nominee for U.S. president, might have trouble identifying all-time basketball greats.

Sky-hook of a joke? Swish.
