Best Wishes for the "Captain", Kareem Abdul Jabbar

Hey OddBallers-

     Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is being treated for a rare form of leukemia, and the basketball great said his prognosis is encouraging. The NBA's all-time leading scorer was diagnosed last December with chronic myeloid leukemia, he told The Associated Press on Monday.

The 62-year-old Abdul-Jabbar said his doctor didn't give any guarantees, but informed him: "You have a very good chance to live your life out and not have to make any drastic changes to your lifestyle."

Abdul-Jabbar is taking an oral medication for the disease. He is a paid spokesman for the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, which makes a drug that treats the illness.

Citing the way Los Angeles Lakers teammate Magic Johnson brought awareness to HIV, Abdul-Jabbar said he wants to do the same for his form of blood cancer, which can be fatal if left untreated.

I've never been a person to share my private life. But I can help save lives," he said at a midtown Manhattan conference room. "It's incumbent on someone like me to talk about this."

This story was highlighted from BEN WALKER, AP National Writer. For more information on this story, go to: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2009/nov/10/nba-great-abdul-jabbar-has-rare-form-of-leukemia/

     Best wishes Captain, from all of us here at OddBall. You are a good man, great scholar, and Hall of Famer.
