Serious question - has UCLA retired Lew Alcindor’s jersey or Karen Abdul Jabbar’s Jersey ?

Cool but can they focus on winning games instead of trying to focus on retiring #s thanks bud

Do you ever say anything positive about LSU or is your life so pathetic that you seek your validation by thrashing anything LSU

White guy here. 43 year old version. I call him Chris Jackson because thats who he was at LSU. He absolutely deserves to have his jersey retired. Get over yourself and your religious and political views. They are retiring his LSU basketball jersey, not his religion. He was an LSU great. He's not a criminal and didn't murder anyone. Hey, while I'm at, I'd like to piss off a few more people. I like Ben Simmons too.

Enraged White dads can't handle black person changing his name. The horror. What a fragile bunch.

It’s not the name change a-hole, it’s that an American hating dissident POS is being glorified by LSU.

What's he hate? Like specifically? Please site sources if you have them so that I can be informed.

I guarantee that this dude does more for the community and the university than you could even imagine. I'd take his farts over anything you could contribute.

I remember when LSU played Georgetown in the Superdome. The Georgetown point guard did an interview where he said he was annoyed because he was an upperclassman on Georgetown but all anyone wanted to talk about was this freshman from LSU. He said that people would see who was better. And we did.

I didn't remember him having an Abdul-Rauf jersey at LSU. Did he have one? I really honestly don't remember him making the change until the NBA. I sure did love watching CJ play though.

He went in the NBA draft in 1990. He became M.A.R. in 1991.

I'll never, ever forget him sinking the last FT versus UNLV and just putting his fist in the air while the Rebels ran down to make a meaningless basket. Baller.

Meaningless basket my @$$! That was the backdoor cover(+2.5).. Rebs were minus Augmon and Jeter that day. Between that bet, and correlated Niner bets and props(55-10 SB rout of Den in Dome).. 14 for 14 day to crush my LSU student bookie for 2 dimes. Things you don't forget.

It's crazy to think of what he could have done in the NBA if they had his medicine dosed right.

He was truly incredible in college.

The greatest LSU basketball player I have ever seen play, at LSU and anywhere in college. Best pure shooter and dribbler without a doubt.

Chrisss Jacksonnnnnnn………… for threeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

He is, without a doubt, the greatest LSU basketball player I ever saw live with my own two eyes. And , with apologies to Shaq, who is an NBA Hall of Famer, and the greatest all time beloved ambassador of LSU,-it's not even close for me. Mahmoud was sublime, pure grace in tennis shoes. I could gush for days. I will meet anybody who disagrees at Sonic.
