One on one: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar vs. Magic Johnson

Hillary Clinton may have Magic Johnson on her side, but the former NBA star's teammate on the Los Angeles Lakers, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, is rooting for Barack Obama.

"Mrs. Clinton is not a bad choice, I just think Mr. Obama is the best choice," Abdul-Jabbar told Nico Pitney of the Huffington Post.

"Unfortunately, Mrs. Clinton has been at many times a divisive figure, and I don't think that's intentional on her part, but I do think that's the case."

On the claim by Johnson in a South Carolina radio campaign ad that Obama is till a "rookie," Abdul-Jabbar says: ""I don't think he's a rookie. He's served as a senator very capably, and he is very skilled in terms of his ability to organize and lead people. And that's what we need right now."
