Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Thinks Aaron Rodgers ‘Damaged Professional Sports’ Forever

Videos by OutKick

We learned Monday that Aaron Rodgers ruined the weekend for both Howard Stern and Mike Florio by refusing to comply with the woke mob’s vaccine demands. Rodgers’ comments hurt Stern and Florio — badly. And now it appears they have wounded NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as well.

On SubStack, Abdul-Jabbar — did anyone know Abdul-Jabbar had a SubStack page? — published a heartrending column about the impending death of sports. According to Abdul-Jabbar, Aaron Rodgers “damaged” professional sports beyond repair.

“Instead of consulting immunologists, he consulted anti-vaxxer and podcast host Joe Rogan, who also contracted the virus,” Abdul-Jabbar began.

As a reminder, Joe Rogan joined the villainous group known as the anti-vaxxers when he questioned whether healthy 21-year-olds need the COVID vaccine. Once you join the anti-vaxxers, you can never leave.

“If [Rodgers] ever requires open-heart surgery, will he hand the scalpel to romance writers because they know about matters of the heart?” Abdul-Jabbar continues.

“What’s especially bothersome is that Aaron Rodgers didn’t just lie and threaten the health of those around him, he also damaged professional sports.”

You might wonder how Rodgers damaged the future of sports, but sadly, Abdul-Jabbar didn’t explain himself. However, he did announce that Rodgers brought “back to life the old stereotype of the big dumb jock.”

If Rodgers is a big dumb jock, imagine what we should call LeBron James…

On Friday, elitist blue-checks said Rodgers used the term woke to dog-whistle to the Right. Of course, social media says the Left doesn’t use dog-whistles, thus ignoring the race-baiting bat signal that is Colin Kaepernick’s name, which Abdul-Jabbar referenced as well.

“I can’t help but think of Colin Kaepernick, who was blacklisted by the NFL for passively expressing his frustration with systemic racism – a brave act meant to help his community and save lives – while multi-millionaire Rodgers will continue to play, despite lying to the fans and his teammates and putting innocent lives in danger,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote, probably with a furious look on his face.

“Time will tell whether Rodgers will be judged by the content of his character or the strength of his throwing arm.”

Abdul-Jabbar closed this drivel by comparing Rodgers, the most talented QB in NFL history, to Blaine Gabbert’s former backup. I would recommend reading Abdul-Jabbar’s article in a humorous tone. There’s little point in reading it if you don’t.

  1. This guy is so clueless. No Lou Alcindor, Aaron Rogers hasn’t brought back the dumb jock era, it never left. It’s always been here because you’ve always been here. You pretend to be some thoughtful scholar when in reality you are just a dumb jock that’s been fooling equally dumb liberals for decades. Aaron Rodgers is Albert Einstein compared to your race baiting idol Colin Kaepernick. You sir are a clown. Anything that you write I know that the opposite is true. You and your moronic Covididiots like Terry Bradshaw, Howard Stern and Mike Terrico are the laughing stock of society and history will not be kind to your ignorance.

  2. Why do so many people think, “Whatever the government narrative says” means that it’s the “smart” choice? Mindlessly following the commands of politicians is in fact the opposite of smart.

    There is ample data that these “vaccines” are not as effective and are more dangerous than originally believe. The only people who don’t admit that now are people who don’t want to be confronted with the truth.

    Aaron Rodgers is a douchebag, but he’s a good football player with skins on the wall and I’m increasingly starting to respect him as a free thinker, too.

  3. The media is more upset about Rodgers not getting the vaccine than they are about Deshaun Watson or Henry Ruggs. Once again, words prove to be more offensive than actions. Oh, and Mike Florio and Terry Bradshaw can go f*** themselves!

  4. Alcindor has always been a racist, hence his admiration for another racist, Kapernick. He tries his best to sound intelligent but he’s just another low IQ lefty negro like Dyson, Reid, and all the others. The only people who take them seriously are rich, White racist liberals and other black racists.
