Kareem Abdul Jabbar

I’m happy to announce a little partnership between ourselves and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. We’ll be cross-blogging with perhaps the best center ever to play in the NBA and he’ll be answering two questions a month for us. I’m awfully excited about our agreement because it’s not often a middling blogger like myself gets to enjoy direct communication with such an all-time great in the world of sports. With that in mind, I’ll move to this month’s questions, which were asked with the NBA Finals in mind — well, Dwight Howard, anyway.

Great Mustaches of the NBA

Kurt Rambis

As proud representatives of the Movember movement, I thought highlighting some great NBA mustaches would go a little way in helping with some additional recognition for Movember’s cause. With that in mind, I’ve selected some memorable staches, some from the vintage days and some from the 80s. Kurt Rambis is our lead image, and after looking at that lip, it’s easy to see why.

Unfortunately, Adam Morrison didn’t make the cut, but it’s not for a lack of effort.

Because of trends, most in this collection are considered old school players, meaning the mighty mustache needs to make a comeback in the NBA. It’s a moral imperative. Anyway, here are a number of players sporting awesome lip hair that stood out to me. If I missed anyone, please let me know.

Greg Oden’s First Basket

Greg Oden

Has there ever been an NBA rookie with this much anticipation — one not named LeBron James? Ever since he left Ohio State, just about every move Greg Oden has made in relation to basketball has been documented. Of course, these matters are helped by Oden’s injury history. After losing last year because of microfracture surgery on his knee, the wheels of anticipation began again as the new season approached.

Finally, his long-awaited debut came against the Lakers and unfortunately for the Oden watchers, it ended almost as soon as it began. After hitting the reset button once again, Portland re-redebuted Oden last night against the Miami Heat and considering he didn’t get hurt, the re-restart has to be considered a success. Granted his stat line was pedestrian — three points, two rebounds and two blocks — but the fact he made it through sixteen minutes without damaging the goods is progress we can believe in.
