The printed excerpt is short, but you can listen to the entire interview at the top:

I sometimes wonder why KAJ hasn't received more basketball related jobs since retirement. Some people say he was an A-hole (ala Garnett), but I think it's likely because he's more vocal about his conscience, which I admire him for.

Kareem is one of the most intelligent man that ever graced the Nba.
I dunno if it's correlated with his absence of work with bball related things after his playing career,but he surely holds his colours with rationality and honesty.
Really great interview,I like it,thanks for the post.

similar to tim duncan, a lot of what this guy does goes unnoticed or is atleast under appreciated
