Watch: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Destroyed Donald Trump at the DNC

Watch: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Destroyed Donald Trump at the DNC

Here's what the NBA Hall of Famer said.

Published July 29, 2016

Long retired, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar could still turn back the hands of time and score points when he wants to.

The Hall of Famer and NBA's all-time leading scorer stuck it to Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Thursday night with a scathing opening line.

Oof! Abdul-Jabbar for the win! 

Kareem's dunking of the Donald continues their back-and-forth beef, which stems back to last fall. That's when Trump shaded Abdul-Jabbar about his pointed Washington Post op-ed column, which accused the businessman of using bullying tactics against journalists and more.

Abdul-Jabbar would fire right back, calling Trump ISIS's greatest triumph last December.

In a Time column named "What Donald Trump and ISIS Have in Common," Abdul-Jabbar blasted the billionaire businessman over his controversial beliefs about Muslims.

We've got Kareem easily beating Trump in their war of words — Sky Hook style.

In 2012, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appointed Abdul-Jabbar as a U.S. cultural ambassador, so you already know he had her back at the DNC last night.
