Jason from Ballhype found this great post:  It's a online chat with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from 10 years ago.  46 questions from fans, and 46 answers that all say nothing.  We are impressed.  It might be years before an athlete says nothing like at this skill level.  Some of our favorites:

Jonathan Smith: "How do you think the league will survive and prosper after the current crop of veterans like Jordan, Barkley, Drexler, Ewing, and Olajuwon retire?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: "I think new stars will continue to step forward."

BobW at 3:32pm ET: "Hi Kareem. Can you explain your motivation for writing "Black Profiles in Courage"? What exactly is the book about?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:32pm ET: "The book is about significant historical figures who were black Americans that received no historical recognition."

ice man at 3:33pm ET: "Who do you think will win this week, the East or the West?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:33pm ET: "I have no idea."

colin bashford iii at 3:38pm ET:  "Out of all the promising rookies this year who do you feel will have the brightest future and impact on the NBA?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:38pm ET:  "I haven't seen all of the promising rookies play, so I'm not qualified to answer that question."

LakerFan at 3:40pm ET:  "What advice can you give to the guy who will attempt the Million Dollar Shot tomorrow?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:40pm ET:  "Practice."

Corey at 3:47pm ET:  "Have you ever thought about coaching?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:47pm ET:  "On occasion."

TODD at 3:48pm ET: "Do you keep in touch with Magic and the rest of the guys from the past Laker teams?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:48pm ET: "Not really."

And my favorite: 

Moosehead from all.ptd.net at 3:34pm ET: "How did you come up with the Sky Hook?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 3:34pm ET:  "It's just a regular hook shot -- someone just gave it the nickname."

Kareem is outspoken!

I had a desire to make my organization, however I didn't have enough amount of money to do this. Thank heaven my close colleague proposed to utilize the business loans. Thence I used the collateral loan and realized my old dream.
