"Instead of exploring his issues with compassion as a way to better understand the man, they turn him into a Wile E. Coyote cartoon to be laughed at," Abdul-Jabbar said in a statement. "He never broke golf clubs, he didn't throw his trophy through the window.

Speaking to reporters before the Lakers’ game on Sunday, Abdul-Jabbar said the NBA’s biggest star should carry himself in a different way considering his gigantic platform.
