Stabbed multiple times?!?! That’s seriously disturbing. I am glad the injuries were non-threatening.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s son allegedly stabbed neighbor over trash can dispute

The 28-year-old son of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been accused of stabbing a 60-year-old neighbor he’s known for years after arguing with the man on their street, police said Saturday.

Adam Abdul-Jabbar was arrested after the Tuesday evening incident in San Clemente, California, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to local media reports.

The alleged victim, Ray Winsor, took himself to an area hospital with multiple injuries. Winsor told police he was stabbed seven times, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson.

In an interview with KABC, Winsor claimed Abdul-Jabbar lived with an elderly woman and Winsor felt he wasn’t doing enough to help her.

“I sort of got on him because the lady who takes care of him is an 83-year-old,” Winsor told the TV station. “(And) he doesn’t do anything for her and it just bums me out. She’s in a walker taking her trash cans down.”

Winsor said Kareem-Jabbar went back inside his house and returned with a knife, saying he was going to “stick a knife through his teeth,” KCBS reported.

“I said, ‘Really,’ because I thought he was only joking,” Winsor said. “I’ve known the kid a long time.”

“I turned and he was on me. I thought he was punching me but he actually had a knife,” Winsor said.

“After the fourth punch, I felt a very sharp pain and noticed blood coming out of me and then I had one to the top of my head and I was trying to get back to my house and he was in front of me.”

Abdul-Jabbar posted $25,000 bail. He apologized to Winsor’s wife the next day, KABC reported.

The daughter of a 60-year-old California man allegedly stabbed seven times by the son of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said she fears for her parents’ lives because the bailed-out suspect is back home next door.

Rachel Winsor, 26, said she grew up with 6-foot-7 Adam Abdul-Jabbar, 28, in San Clemente and was shocked and horrified Tuesday when her father told her Adam had gone berserk over an argument involving trash cans.

After being bailed out on Wednesday, he returned home and made a bee-line for his victim’s house.

“He came over to say he was sorry to my mom, but I can’t believe he got out so fast,” Winsor told The Post Saturday.

“What if he wants to come finish off the job?”

Abdul-Jabbar was arrested after the Tuesday evening incident in Orange County on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, police said.

Ray Winsor took himself to an area hospital with multiple injuries. He was resting at home Saturday.

Abdul-Jabbar and Rachel’s parents, Ray and Sheila, are neighbors in a cul-de-sac. Abdul-Jabbar has lived with a woman named Evelyn Calvert, a friend of his mother, since graduating from high school, Rachel said. Adam called her his adopted grandmother.

“Before that Adam used to come visit here on spring break and in the summer throughout our childhood,” Rachel said. “I known him since I was little. This was so out of the blue. I’ve never seen him like that.”

She said her dad was bothered that Adam didn’t seem to help Calvert, who is in her 80s. “She has a walker but he doesn’t even help her with groceries,” Winsor said. “It just really was upsetting for my dad to see that. He’s a really traditional guy.”

Reached by phone, Sheila Winsor said her husband was in pain all night. A nurse arrived during her call with The Post to administer pain medication. Mrs. Winsor said she has not opened the door to Abdul-Jabbar but “his car is right next door across the cul-de-sac.”

“My husband is a trouper but he’s really sore,” she said.

Rachel Winsor said Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was sighted briefly after the alleged stabbing incident but did not stay long or visit her parents.

“He’s never stepped up,” Winsor said, adding that she meant Abdul-Jabbar never seemed to have much of a role in Adam’s life. “He just turns a blind eye.”

She said Adam had grown up near Atlanta with his mother and his mother’s partner but did not get along very well with them and moved back with Calvert permanently after high school after spending time with her as a child.

Rachel Winsor said her dad was a manager at a local car repair shop and “a great guy loved by everyone.”

Rachel says her father told her he was stabbed in the back of the head and the neck.

Don't mean to laugh too much about this incident, but for a few seconds I was like "Hmm, the neighbor doesn't look like Bob Ross at all..." Then I googled Kareem's kid.

That's who I was referring to.

Yep. I'm surprised that the neighbor hasn't gotten a restraining order.

Or a serious anger management problem. Or could be on drugs which can result in people lashing out like this.

It's not just the attack. He's 28 years old and since high school has lived with an 83 year old woman to whom he's not related and who reportedly takes care of him, not the other way around. I have nothing against unusual living arrangements but I'd be very surprised if there isn't some kind of mental illness there, and frankly I appreciate the guy who got stabbed for trying to stick up for that old woman a bit, because it sounds like she's in a tough position.
