Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Really Didn’t Like The Balloon Drop At The DNC Last Night

NBA hall of famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar gave one of the most pointed speeches of the Democratic National Convention.

Unfortunately for him, his speech wasn’t pointed enough to pop all the balloons that dropped on the convention floor after Hillary Clinton’s speech.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar just hates balloons.

Democratic New York Delegate and Mayor of Ithaca Svante Myrick took some photos of Abdul-Jabbar looking angered by the balloons and put them on his Facebook page.


The photos caused a stir online with nearly 1,000 people “liking” them.

Poor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

All he wanted to do was make fun of Donald Trump and show off his very good speaking abilities.

Instead, he had to wage war with his old nemesis- latex balloons.

At least the night started out well.
