On Tuesday I return to work at my volunteer job at the Closter Borough Hall. Tomorrow is the first day of July.

Throwback jersey of the night: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 1974 Milwaukee Bucks tank top. Yes kids, Kareem played for Milwaukee and even won the 1971 NBA Championship with them before he was traded and won 5 championships with Magic Johnson the Los Angeles Lakers.
more like the wrong guys to have traded... but who is to say the chemistry with that team would have worked...? History has shown us that in some trades, one of the two parties can be greatly benefited while the other party will be a big loser. We’ve seen several such deals in the history of the NBA. Let’s break down which are the Worst 10 trades in the history of the league. No.1: Charlotte Hornets trade Kobe Bryant to the Los Angeles Lakers Some trades are meant to change the entire history of a franchise. The Hornets received Vlade Divac, who was a solid starter at that time. But Kobe turned out to be the next big thing in the NBA. A definite loss for Charlotte. No.2: Milwaukee Bucks trade Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Yet another time the Los Angeles Lakers were the big winners of a trade. This time it was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who came to LA to change the course of the franchise. The Lakers gave away Dave Meyers, Junior Bridgeman, Brian Winters and Elmore Smith but they never were able to meet the expectati ...

On January 9, 1972, 24-year-old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar leads the Milwaukee Bucks in a 120-104 victory over Wilt Chamberlain and the Los Angeles Lakers, breaking the Lakers’ record 33-game winning streak, the longest of any team in American professional sports.
