Standing in front of the Staples Center in Los AngelesĀ is this 16 1/2 foot tall bronze statue of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Sculpted by Chicago-based artists Julie Rotblatt Amrany and Omri Amrany, Kareem is depicted shooting the 'majestic skyhook', his world famous shot. Commissioned by a joint venture between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Staples Center, the sculpture is finished with a classic bronze patina. The addition of purple and gold pigments is solely recognizable as the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers.
