The subject of Islam has always been a hot-button debate, even in the NBA. One of the league’s most polarizing individuals in history is none other than Chris Jackson, who later converted to Islam during his NBA career and took on the religious name Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. His refusal to stand during a the traditional singing of the National Anthem before a game and shaky remarks regarding the American Flag prompted a swirl of controversy around his name, when he rather should be remembered as one of the greatest Free-Throw shooters in NBA history. Layupshot pays homage to this point-guard legend with this awesome Nuggets-inspired design, opting for ‘Chris Jackson’ with the initials on the heel as a way to pay respects to the same man. A detailed gallery is just below so take a look and let us know what you remember from Jackson/Abdul-Rauf’s career!
