Dunham did say she could imagine the NBA Hall of Famer appearing on “Girls” some day.

"Kareem crushed it on New Girl," she gushed. (Abdul-Jabbar guest starred as himself on New Girl in April.) "So if we’re ever in need of a Kareem type, he’s definitely the first person I’d go to."
I’m not saying I have to struggle to pay the rent like Lena Dunham’s character, Hannah, but there was a point, right before Judd cast me in Freaks and Geeks, when my parents cut me off because I wanted to go to acting school instead of UCLA. I worked at McDonalds, and my first suggestion to Hannah would be this: get a fucking job.
