    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Let’s get this part out of the way first: Yes, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should have a statue out in front of Staples Center.

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    It was more than just Rihanna and Drake (and Kanye). It certainly was more than Lenny Kravitz. It’s the game. The NBA is as hot as it has been since the Jordan era and that continued again Sunday — the All-Star Game from Staples Center had 9.1 million people tune in to watch, the highest…

    It doesn’t get any more iconic than being “The Logo.” So it seems fitting that the Lakers are going to honor Jerry West — the legendary Lakers player and general manager — with a statue in Star Plaza outside Staples Center. The statue will be unveiled All-Star Weekend (which is at Staples this year). West…
