    Kareem flunks UCLA hoops history

    Okay, Alex, we'll take "Embarrassed on national television" for $400.

    That's how Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wound up looking on Jeopardy yesterday when he botched a slam-dunk in the category of "I Went To UCLA."

    For $400, up came: "Tell your old man to drag this '70s UCLA & Trail Blazer center (& Lanier!) up & down the court for 48 minutes."

    The winning response would have been "Who is Bill Walton?" Instead, he answered "Who is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?"

    The quote was originally uttered about Walton, by Abdul-Jabbar, who apparently doesn't remember which NBA teams he played for.

    Did he forget his famous line from "Airplane" ????

    One of the best lines of the movie! Remember when he passed out and they had to drag him out of the co-pilots seat and still had his Lakers shorts on? :lol:
