Jimmy Kimmel welcomed special guest Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to his show last night, and the host had plenty of material ready for the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

Jabbar, there promoting his diving reality show Splash, talked about breaking his toe recently on a pool ladder.

“Why are you diving, do you have gambling debts?” joked Kimmel, who also pointed out that Jabbar wore goggles as a basketball player, but not as a diver.

The biggest applause of the night, however, we heard after Captain Skyhook expressed interest in becoming the new men’s basketball coach at UCLA.

What do you guys think? Would you like the see Kareem on the Bruins’ bench next year?
