The Sports Kings: Abdul-Jabbar’s New Position!

It’s now Ambassador Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The NBA’s all-time scoring leader is now a global cultural ambassador for the State Department. Ann Stock, assistant secretary of state for education and cultural affairs, says Abdul-Jabbar will travel the world to engage a generation of young people to help promote diplomacy.

Stock says the appointment is part of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s vision of “Smart Power” that combines diplomacy, defense and development to “bridge the gap in a tense world through young people.”
