Kareem tweets about Tim Duncan
 
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Tim Duncan has been the epitome of steadiness & consistency his whole career. Congrats on passing me in block shots! G-luck in the Playoffs Twitter

that's one class guy to another and lets not forget that Jabbar played entirely when the 1st round were 5 round series or this mark may have been much higher

Very good point... Except one might argue that the Lakers (and other teams Kareem was a member of) often played deeper into the playoffs.

It would be great to see how many post season games each played (to set that record).

Kareem played 237 playoff games

Timmy - 187!

Hakeem only played 145!

according to NBA.com

and he missed the 2000 playoffs. we probably would have been doing this 2 years ago or so?

237 games that sucked...no surprise to me.

Kareem has never been the most gracious guy in the world, so his acknowledgement is that much more significant.

You go, Timmy!

Uwe Blab 06-02-12 05:44 PM

Kareem was in the league 20 years and making the playoffs nearly every year while being the premier center and tallest guy on the court most of the time. Timmy should not have passed him already.

That's our Timmy Duncan! :celebrate!

And that's shocking and great to hear Kareem tweet that. :)

This is one of those asterisk records.

Blocked shots were not kept as a stat during the early part of Kareem's career. That was classy of Kareem to tweet like that knowing he had blocks that did not get credited during the most athletic portion of his career.

Wilt and Russell would be 1 and 2 but blocked shots were not recorded as an official stat when they played.

In his first NBA game, vs. the Knicks, Wilt scored 43 points, had 28 rebounds, and according to press reports, blocked 17 shots. Referees who officiated a lot of Chamberlain's and Russell's games said that both of them probably averaged at least 6-8 blocks per game over their careers. Both played 160+ playoff games so they probably had at least 900 blocks in the playoffs which is about double what the current record is.

Lets not analyze this to death, Duncan probably played less minutes per game. As Bowen would say, "It is what it is".

Wow, something classy from Kareem!
