Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won six NBA championships during his long Hall of Fame career with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers. He has the rings to prove it, but won't for long.
The 71-year-old basketball legend is auctioning off his championship rings, not because he needs the money, but because kids need an education.
Kareem's Skyhook Foundation will use the money raised from the auctions to help kids learn more about science, technology, engineering and math.
He wrote in a blog post, "When it comes to choosing between storing a championship ring or trophy in a room, or providing kids with an opportunity to change their lives, the choice is pretty simple. Sell it all."
The rings aren't the only items up for bid. He's also auctioning off game-worn jerseys, signed basketballs and other artifacts from his incredible career. (USA Today)
