Czar Trivia

On this day in 1984, #33 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored point number 31,420 with his trademark “sky-hook” shot against the Utah Jazz, breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s record to become the highest-scoring NBA player ever.

Cap retired five years later after scoring 6,967 more points. And he remains the NBA’s all-time leading scorer with 38,387 career points in 20 seasons.

In addition to his six NBA championships, record six regular season MVP Awards, record 19 All-Star appearances and his signature sky-hook, the multi-talented Big Fella will also be remembered for his role as co-pilot Roger Murdock in the 1980 hit comedy Airplane.
