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).
