Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!

Take out the garbage, take out the garbage.

He's been hearing that shiat ever since he was at UCLA.  He's out there busting his buns EVERY NIGHT.  Go tell his old man to drag garbage cans up and down the driveway for 48 minutes.

They charged him with being a dagger jabbar?

Garbage can? What is it?

Adam Abdul-Jabbar...was charged with multiple felonies for repeatedly stabbing his neighbor after a dispute over trash cans...

Over garbage cans?
 
2020-08-26 1:58:38 PM  
The argument escalated and Abdul-Jabbar is accused of stabbing the man multiple times with a large hunting knife, including in the back of the head, causing a fractured skull and a brain bleed, the DA's Office said.

Lock this guy up, post haste.

A container for trash. But that's not important right now.

I'll never get over garbage cans. Those smells run pretty deep.

Was his mother Bob Ross?
 
2020-08-26 2:04:32 PM  
Shawn Holley, Abdul-Jabbar's attorney, said in a statement that it was "the complaining witness in this matter who initiated the altercation and it was Mr. Abdul-Jabbar who contacted the police to report it. For these reasons and many more, we are disappointed that this case was filed, but stand ready to address the charges in court," Holley said.

Translation from Lawyer: "Come on, guys, you know I've got nothing here, so here's the bare minimum effort to justify my fees."

What a Dirk might look like.  He's daring too.

He should just name the cans Walton and Lanier.

/He hates these cans!

If coffee remains were involved, can he claim "stand your grounds"?
 
2020-08-26 2:11:28 PM  
Damn near kills a guy with a hunting knife including stabbing him in the head and if guilty the MAX he faces is 9 years??

I guess this rogue lost his evasion saving throw against the cops.

Seems like attempted murder would be apropos. What an asshole.

yeah, the weird-looking guy dirked up the old guy something terrible.
and the stabbed-near-to-death guy wants Dirk to get help.  it's good he's not the vengeful type, if 9 years is the max sentence for dirking an old man in the front damn yard before god and man and the HOA.  what was he doing with his dagger in his hand out in the driveway to begin with?
me being a dumbass aside, it's a shame something violent has to happen before people get some mental wellness help, but i don't know what to do about it.  if people can't 1. diagnose themselves and 2. find the right kind of help, how can anyone intervene before it gets really bad?  i don't have answers for this.

I've heard of a dirk being called a diggler, but never a dagger.
 
2020-08-26 2:18:27 PM  
Happened months ago, really low bail amount, and he was the one who called the cops? Sounds like election year charges for the DA

It's one of the perks of having someone rich and famous as a dad.
 
2020-08-26 2:45:28 PM  
I really need a lot more info on this.

How did the argument start? Why does he have a dirk on him while in his front yard? Who starts a fight with what must be like a 6'10" dude with a knife over garbage cans? Something else mentioned he didn't take them in for his elderly roommate. Why does he have an elderly roommate?

If you're the kid of Kareem and you use a Dirk, that's damn near 70K NBA points involved in this stabbing!

Also, were any of the stabs skyhooks? Why is 9 years, 7 months the max sentence for such a crime? Why not 10 years?

He gets away with near murder since the D.A. feels sorry for him because he is the unwanted bastard son of a famous basketball player?

Nice to see Kareem's son inherited his temper.
 
2020-08-26 3:13:55 PM  
"I think he tried to kill me. I mean, it could've been one inch this way, one inch that way, I could've been dead... I want to see him get some help."

That neighbor is a LOT kinder than I would be.
