This is the first game I’ve seen this season where Dwight has completely dominated.
He just might be back into form.

“The Captain,” Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, “Master of the Skyhook,” turned 65 today; officially full-retirement age. It is another momentous milestone for a guy who has been a basketball icon since the 1960s; and for a man who may have never been the most beloved, but certainly is among the smallest number of most-accomplished N.B.A. superstars. (Check out the volumes of long-term superlative insanity under “Appearances on Leaderboards and Honors.”)
His presence was ultimately dwarfed in some ways by circumstances, in a city that loves flash and a guy named “Magic,” whose megawatt personality would seemingly outshine the sun, but Jabbar has meant equally as much to the community of basketball, as he has to Los Angeles and the Lakers; representing and foreshadowing the rise of basketball media and the attention given to the national prep stars of today, when he was at Power Memorial, to the 38 game N.C.A.A. Tournament win streak and multiple championships of U.C.L.A.’s 1960s dominance, to the Lakers’ 1980s five championship title runs. He was always penalized for being a bit shy and awkward (except for this time); but on the court, he was pure grace and élan, and it was forever symbolized in that most-devastating weapon, his skyhook.
Happy Birthday, good sir, to a Captain of basketball giants.
Happy Birthday, Cap.

I don’t even care what they got. I do care what they got. But I don’t right now, out of respect.
I can only hope he comes back to coach the Lakers.
D-Fish, we will miss you dearly. Thanks for everything. You will forever be a Laker…
