Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Video: Lakers' Legend Shows His Love of Porn on Jeopardy

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 24, 2016

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar drove to the hoop and clanked an easy layup off the rim, figuratively speaking that is. 

Guyism directs us to a classic fail from one of the most respected players in basketball history. It would be forgivable if he weren't also a well-respected mind. 

Alex Trebek lobs a softball to the big man that manages to flail, whiff and make us all laugh in the process. 

The question is a simple one that comes down to essentially: what is the missing movie rating? The obvious answer is "G," but I have always been something of a genius when it comes to easy answers. 

Instead, Jabbar goes with the lesser-used albeit sexier X rating, something that was ditched for NC-17 in 1970. 

It's not that the Lakers legend enjoys porn, it's that he managed to give us an archaic rating of one on national TV when the obvious answer sat there like Luke Walton on an NBA bench. 

The best part is that this is becoming a theme with the big man. He was on the show a couple years ago and failed just as greatly. 

Here is a video clip of him being asked a question that cites the same words he used in the movie Airplane

"Tell your old man to drag this 70's UCLA and Trail Blazer center (& Lanier) up and down the court for 48 minutes."

Instead of going with the correct answer of Bill Walton, he managed to go with himself as his best guess. 

Get this man a permanent spot on the show.
