While speaking at a recent Milwaukee Bucks game, NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar addressed LeBron James's "Mount Rushmore" and questioned how Bill Russell could have been left off of such a list.  

“It’s impossible,” Abdul-Jabbar said of picking just four players. “I don’t know what LeBron was thinking. He didn’t even see Bill Russell play. He has no idea what Bill Russell did. Eleven championships in 13 years? Eight in a row? LeBron isn’t going to get anywhere near that. I don’t get it. And here he didn’t want Bill Russell on his Rushmore. I think today’s players have a very limited perspective on the game.”

“LeBron has to re-think that,” he added. “He needs to go and do some research and watch some old film, and hopefully he’ll be impressed.”
