NBC’s hit comedy “The Office” is pulling out all the stops in its final season.

Including Dr. J.

NBA legend Julius Erving will have a cameo as himself in the Jan. 17 episode, getting into a business venture with Jim Halpert, reports The 700 Level (via Entertainment Weekly).

In the episode, Dr. J becomes an investor in the sports marketing business that Jim (John Krasinski) is trying to launch in Philadelphia, where Erving scored more than a few baskets as a 76er.

It’s the final season of “The Office” you should be watching it anyway. But now, you have a little more motivation to set the DVR, just so you can see a 62-year-old Dr. J recreate great moves he made in the finals (see photo).

      “I wish the office was over already.”

      Fixed that for ya. Show has been pretty unwatchable over the past few seasons. It ended when Michael left as far as I’m concerned.
