NBA Hall of Famer, author, cultural ambassador, and all-around nice guy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar joined us for a greenroom interview after his appearance on Morning Joe today.

He talked about his new children's book, how he would have otherwise been a history teacher, and tells us who he thinks has the magic among today's young NBC stars.

Here's a photograph of him in the msnbc hallway, posing with the decidedly not-short but nowhere-near-as-tall Morning Joe producer Louis Burgdorf.
