Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Keshia Knight Pulliam Join Cast Of ABC’s Celebrity Competition Show ‘Splash’

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Keshia Knight Pulliam Join Cast Of ABC's Celebrity Competition Show 'Splash'

And finally, ending the day with some totally non-essential news, comes word that former NBA legend, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and former Cosby kid (although I’m sure she hates being called that) Keshia Knight Pulliam, have joined the cast of ABC’s new celebrity competetion sports show Splash.

The show, which is set to premiere on Tuesday March 19th at 8PM (7PM Central), features celebrities, including Chuy Bravo, Drake Bell, Ndamukong Suh, Rory Bushfield and Nicole Eggert, who will train and complete in regulation platform and springboard driving from extreme heights, in front of an audience and Olympic judges.

To be honest, with the exception of Pulliam and Jabbar, I have no idea who those other people are, and, yes, I could Google them and pretend that I know who they are – but that would be cheating. And let’s be honest, I think Pulliam and Jabbar are the only real celebrities in the cast.

But I can’t lie. I’m going to have to watch this show just to see Jabbar take a dive off the high platform into a belly flop.
