Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Dunks for the Smashing Pumpkins: Watch

Basketball may seem like rap's sport of choice, but rock is getting in the game -- or at least '90s alt-rock legends the Smashing Pumpkins are.

In what may be the most unlikely promo you've seen all year, NBA hero Kareem Abdul-Jabbar gets down with Billy Corgan and co. by doing what he does best: Dunking. And this time, it's a pumpkin... and you can only guess what the pumpkin does after it goes through the net. Watch below.

Of course, the promo aspect of the clip comes toward the end. Kareem gives a shout out to the Pumpkins' album "Oceania," set for release later this year.
