Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Episode: Love Is a Many Strangled Thing
First aired: March 27, 2011

Memorable Moment
Marge encourages Homer to enroll in a fathering enrichment class taught by therapist Dr. Zander. Shocked to learn that Homer often strangles Bart for mischievous behavior, Dr. Zander conducts a series of treatments with the help of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to teach Homer what it feels like to be young and small.
Kareem: "Dr. Zander and I play pickup basketball on the weekend, and when he told me what you do to your son, I was so disturbed I only scored 172 points."
Dr. Zander: "I had 86 assists."
The two high-five.
