Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has the Dodgers’ fans backs


In a special commentary to ESPN.com, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, calling himself a “life-long Los Angeles Dodgers fan,” explains his lastest “foul mood.”

“We Dodgers fans deserve better,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote on ESPN.com, calling McCourt “the root of the problems.”

The New York native whose dad grew up in Brooklyn listening to Dodgers games, added: “I often wonder how this would have played out if the Dodgers were still in the borough of Brooklyn. My guess is Brooklynites would have thrown the perpetrators of this type of farce out on their ears . . .

“I can’t help rooting for Mr. McCourt’s wife to force a situation that will result in the team being sold. I am honestly thrilled by the possibility that the franchise might soon be in the hands of owners who want to win the World Series and have that as their singular focus. . .

“As one of the Flatbush Faithful, I have resorted to feeling that the bums (not the Dodgers) should be thrown out, and who can blame me? All this chaos will probably get worse before it gets better, but that will not deter a fan like me.”
