    The New Republic’s The Plank: Another Blogger for Obama… Only this one’s named Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Actually, Kareem’s whole blog is worth a read: There aren’t that many 7-foot-2 Hall-of-Famers out there who can still shoot a sky-hook and write intelligently about Herbie Hancock and the straitjacket of music genres.

    Top of the Ticket: You couldn’t stop him on the court, you can’t stop him here from writing about his life and thoughts exclusively on LATimes.com.

    LA Taco: Besides being one of the greatest basketball players of all time, Kareem is a noted historian, author, LA legend, and all-around amazing person. So far his blog is focusing on sports, black history, music, and politics. It rules, and so does Kareem.
