Variety | 'Kareem: Minority Of One' Review

Variety

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a study in contradictions – someone who has been the center of attention since an early age, yet has long sought to avoid the spotlight, even if his prodigious basketball skills and 7’2”-inch frame made that impossible. HBO zeroes in on those qualities in the former NBA star – and on a career that many would argue establishes him as the best, or at least most dominant, player ever – in “Kareem: Minority of One,” a documentary that stands nearly as tall as its subject, with the only real flaw being the relatively short shrift afforded to his post-hoops endeavors.

The story is too old to be commented.
