One-on-one with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
In November 2009, the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, or CML. Three and a half years later, he is teaching new patients how to live with the disease. Abdul-Jabbar was in Chicago this weekend for “Living Well With CML,” an event for CML patients. RedEye talked with the legend about the disease, along with other topics including Derrick Rose and the Bulls-Nets series.
