The Lakers’ legend gave a huge gift to support those on the frontline of the pandemic.

Another NBA legend has stepped up to help during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar donated 900 sets of safety goggles to UCLA Health.

“I am honored to be able to use whatever resources I can to help UCLA Health continue its courageous and necessary work to protect the health of our community,” said Abdul-Jabbar.

Abdul-Jabbar was known for his trademark goggles during his stellar NBA career.

“On behalf of UCLA Health, I am honored and grateful to accept the generous donation of protective goggles from our friend, the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,” Dr. Esrailian said. “We are incredibly grateful for the recent outpouring of financial support and donations of supplies during this unprecedented time. #TeamLA is stronger than ever before thanks to all of you, and we will get through this together.”
