Red Hot Chili Peppers bass guitarist Flea, who is also known for his love for basketball, revealed the most thankful moment of Los Angeles Lakers history that might make you surprised.

Most of the people would expect that one of the most legendary players in LAL, Kobe Bryant, who passed away earlier this year because of the tragic helicopter crash, would be the person that Flea would choose.

However, Flea was thinking about someone else. Right now, you might think that this is the player who recently joined the Los Angeles Lakers and led them to the trophy, Lebron James, but Flea was living in the old-school.

You may already know, Los Angeles Lakers acquired Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Walt Wesley from Milwaukee Bucks back in 1975. Flea was just 13 in these days. In the post, Flea stated that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s addition to the roster is the most thankful moment for the Lakers and showed his respect to another legend, who has a six-time NBA Most Valuable Player award in the tournament.

A Twitter user asked:

“What’s one moment in Laker history you’re most thankful for?”

Flea replied:

“Trading for Kareem Abdul Jabbar.”
