That point was brought home this week in an Instagram post that featured two behind-the-scene photos of the two. Abdul-Jabbar, listed as 7-foot-2 on NBA.com, is appearing in a “BBT” episode airing Feb. 21 as the sitcom counts down to its farewell.
Rauch, said to be 4-foot-11, even managed a joke about her height in the caption, pitching her services to Abdul-Jabbar’s former team, the Lakers, “as a (very) Small Forward.”
