    Incredible casting. He literally became Kareem. The mannerisms, focus and authorative nature of Mr. Jabbar. That scene with him and Earvin Sr. was his best scene yet.

    Solomon is excellent as Kareem. They couldn't have found a better actor for that role. I would love to see this guy become a huge star.

    Such an amazing interview. Dr. Solomon seems like a very intelligent, articulate guy and nails his performance as KAJ in the show. Can't wait to see what's in store in the next few episodes and season 2.

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, along with Dr. J, still are my favorite NBA players.

  • @AndrewAtkinson1

    This guy embodies Kareem. To the point where I was shocked to see the real Kareem in the sidebyside airplane shot. He's killing it.

    Rich! If you were SOOO impressed with the authenticity of the "Kareem Airplane scene?"...I can't believe you missed "THE REAL AIRPLANE DIRECTORS!!!"(Zucker bros. now with gray hair) directing the scene in the re enactment!(I know, because I worked with them, in "Ruthless People"😉)....loved the interview with Solomon btw, and the Lakers TV series!👍
