Kareem Abdul-Jabbar talks about his new memoir, Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court, and his decades-long friendship with UCLA coach and mentor John Wooden.
After the conversation, with sportscaster Dan Patrick, Adbul-Jabbar answers questions from the audience, including one young fan’s question on who Kareem’s favorite teammate was and why.
Later in this episode, we hear from patrons of RJ Julia on what’s on their nightstand.
