The Los Angeles Lakers have a young team, with plenty of unproven players that still need help if they are going to succeed at the NBA level. The team brought in veterans to help with this process over the offseason, and to further aid their young team, the Lakers had a few familiar faces drop by to talk to the roster about off the court development:

This kind of visit won’t lead to a massive spike in wins this year, but it just adds to the list of the things the Lakers are doing in an attempt to grow towards long-term success.
Plus, if Ivica Zubac is going to work on his skyhook, maybe he can get some skills from Kareem by osmosis.
Update: Ivica Zubac actually did work on his skyhook with Abdul-Jabbar!
