Kareem: Minority of One' HBO Documentary Preview, TV Schedule

Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 01 Nov 2015

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is arguably the greatest player to ever step on the NBA hardwood, and the Los Angeles Lakers legend is primed to grace television screens Tuesday when HBO debutsKareem: Minority of Oneto audiences across the country.Before previewing the documentary, here's a rundown of when and where you can catch the program. For reference, a full list of showtimes beyond the debut is available at HBO's official website.Date:Tuesday, Nov. 3Time:10 p.m. ETTV:HBOOnline: HBO Goand HBO NowPreviewThe documentary traces Abdul-Jabbar's upbringing and his decision to attend UCLA, where he connected with legendary head coach John Wooden before making his ascent to the NBA.However, his professional journey remains one of the more fascinating stories the league has ever seenparticularly to younger fans who weren't able to watch the league's all-time leading scorer in his prime.After getting drafted No. 1 overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in 1969, Abdul-Jabbar captured Rookie of the Year honors behind staggering averages of 28.8 points, 14.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists. One year later, Kareem led the Bucks to a title as Milwaukee swept the Baltimore Bullets in the NBA Finals.And while he lasted six seasons with the Bucks, Abdul-Jabbar ultimately wiggled his way out of the Midwest and moved back to Los Angeleswhere his profile exploded as a member of the Lakers.Back in California, his sky hook became the stuff of legends as he helped lead the Lakers to five titles between 1980 and 1988.But Kareem was a transcendent presence beyond the basketball court."I figured that there are a whole lot of questions about my life that really everybody is still in the dark about," Abdul-Jabbar said, according to Newsday's Mike Gavin."I didn't want to go to my grave as a mystery man."Specifically, the documentary is said to focus on Abdul-Jabbar's conversion to Islam and his emergence as a prominent public role as a social activist.According to Gavin, one of Abdul-Jabbar's primary objectives was to use the platform as a way to convey his feelings regarding his role as an opinion leader:Just the motivation for a lot of the stances that I took. Sometimes people would question me as to my motives, and not speaking about it publicly really just maintained the mystery. So I wanted to clear the air on so many of the instances that people bring up when they talk about my life.Abdul-Jabbar's compelling story is difficult to sum up in 90 minutes, but by all accounts, Kareem: Minority of Onedoes an excellent job of painting the six-time MVP as a man who had just as significant an impact off the court as he did on it.Basketball enthusiast or not, there are plenty of reasons to tune in and admire the way Abdul-Jabbar evolved as a person while transforming into arguably the most dominant force the sport has ever seen.
