Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is widely considered to be one of the greatest NBA players of all time. During his 20 years in the NBA from 1969 to 1989, he scored 38,387 points, the highest total of any player in league history, in addition to winning a record six Most Valuable Player Awards. In 1975, the Lakers acquired Abdul-Jabbar from the Bucks. In his first season with Los Angeles, Abdul-Jabbar had a dominating season, averaging 27.7 points per game and leading the league in rebounding, blocked shots and minutes played. His 1111 defensive rebounds remains the NBA single-season record (defensive rebounds were not recorded prior to the 1973-1974 season). In 1979, the Lakers acquired Magic Johnson as the first overall draft pick, paving the way for a second Abdul-Jabbar dynasty as the Lakers went on to become the most dominant team of the 1980s, appearing in the finals eight times and winning five NBA championships. During that time, Jabbar received his record sixth MVP award in 1980, four more All-NBA First Team designations, two more All-Defense First Team designations, the 1985 Finals MVP, and in 1984 he broke Wilt Chamberlain's record for career points. On the center front tail of the jersey is the "Tiernan" manufacturers tag. Across the front of the jersey is "LAKERS" Below that and on the back of the jersey is the player number "33. Across the back of the jersey the player name "ABDUL-JABBAR". All lettering and numbering is done in purple on white tackle twill. The jersey shows excellent game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. Accompanied by a LOA from a Lakers Employee.
