Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (April 16, 1947, New York City), originally born Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor Jr.; is a former American basketball player who played 20 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers. During his career as a center, Abdul-Jabbar was a record six-time NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), a six-time NBA champion (Finals MVP in two of them), a record 19-time NBA All-Star, a 15-time All-NBA selection, an 11-time NBA All-Defensive Team member, and the all-time career scoring leader. He has also acted in such movies as "Airplane!".
He appears as himself in "The D & D Vortex" playing D&D with Wil Wheaton and William Shatner. When playing with the girls, Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz tells him that she is a huge fan and that she and her father watched him win consecutive NBA titles in 1987 and 1988. Kareem responds that he saw her sniff Joe Manganiello's hair when Joe wasn't looking. When the group took a photo to get back at the guys, Kareem's head was cut off.
