The neighbor spoke with the TV station and said he has known Abdul-Jabbar for years. The alleged victim, identified as Ray Winsor, said Abdul-Jabbar lives with a woman who helped raise him.
Winsor said the stabbing attack occurred after a verbal disagreement when he offered Abdul-Jabbar advice and told him he should help the woman out more.
“I think he’s got some serious problems,” Winsor said. “I think he tried to kill me. I mean, it could’ve been one inch this way, one inch that way, I could’ve been dead.”
“I want to see him get some help,” Winsor added.
According to published reports, Adam Abdul-Jabbar appeared on Celebrity Family Feud with his famous father in 2017.
