Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (born Chris Wayne Jackson) is a former American professional basketball player. Abdul-Rauf played basketball for Gulfport High School before enrolling at Louisiana State University to play college basketball for the Tigers.
His nine-year NBA career, spent with the Denver Nuggets, Sacramento Kings and Vancouver Grizzlies, was marked by an appearance in the Slam Dunk Contest as well as by one of the most accurate free-throw shooting records ever. Considered one of the greatest free-throw shooters in the history of the game, Abdul-Rauf missed the all time free-throw shooting NBA season record by only a single miss in the 1995â96 season. After his NBA career, he played in multiple leagues around the world. Abdul-Rauf sparked controversy for refusing to stand for the national anthem, and calling the flag of the United States a symbol of oppression. (Wikipedia)
Twenty years later, despite losing prime years of NBA stardom, enduring death threats and having his home burned to the ground, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf still does not stand for the national anthem.
The quicksilver guard who foreshadowed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernickâs protest is now living in Atlanta, taking care of his five teenage children along with his ex-wife, training NBA players, and giving occasional speeches to groups in black or Muslim communities. At age 47, he has no regrets about choosing the difficult journey that Kaepernick is just starting. (Jesse Washington, The Undefeated)
