The most surprising thing about this 80’s ad from Adidas is it says Kareem only wears a size 16 shoe. Considering LeBron James wears a size 16 and Shaq wears a size 21 you would think the almost 7’2″ player would have bigger feet (do not insert anatomy joke here).

Check out his other measurements!

Height: 7-1.88 (7-1.375 UCLA, 7-1.625 Bucks training camp, 7-1.88 Bucks training camp yr 2)
Wingspan: 7-5

Playing Weight:
225lbs – rookie
231lbs – 2nd season
235lbs – early career
240lbs – mid career
267lbs – late career

Oh well, so his feet aren’t that “impressive” but his skyhook was.  Here’s 6 minutes of the most unstoppable shot ever.
