After the Milwaukee Bucks and Scott Skiles agreed to part ways back in January, veteran assistant Jim Boylan took over as interim head coach. Milwaukee could be in the market for a new head coach this summer, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who led the franchise to a championship in 1971, says he would be interested in the job.
According to Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee:
I asked [Kareem Abdul-Jabbar] flat out if he would be willing to be the head coach of the Bucks.
“Of course,” he replied.
“I know how to prepare for a season as an individual and I know what that means in terms of team commitment,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “I can get all the right people together that have some chemistry and care about each other and they love the game. That’s where teams are made or not made successful.
