    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…

  2. Sixers bring Dr. J. back in house as consultant, ambassador

    It’s about history and connection in a city that really gets those things. Philadelphia 76ers fans are starved for a championship, but that is not happening this year. But new owner Josh Harris and CEO Adam Aron know that it’s going to take more than just winning to really win over the fans in Philly…

  3. Dr. J gets financial boost, 76ers (and fans) get memorabilia

    We brought the story last month of how Julius Erving was having some financial challenges due to some failed investments, and on an unrelated note happened to be having a lot of his memorabilia auctioned off. “Unrelated” is the official story, choose to believe what seems logical to you. Turns out there is a real…

  4. Much of Dr. J’s personal memorabilia up for auction

    Does it make anyone else sad when a famed pro athlete auctions off a lot of his memorabilia? Julius Erving — who you remember best as Dr. J. doing a scoop shot in the finals for the Sixers — is doing just that, according to the Atlanta Journal Consitition (via Ball Don’t Lie). The majority…

  5. Today’s players more athletic than 20 years ago, but are they better?

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 5

    Nobody in their right mind wonders if Magic Johnson, Dr. J or Larry Bird could compete in today’s NBA. Certain players would succeed in any era. But could the average NBA player from the 1980s compete in the NBA of 2011? Well, let’s make that 2010 because who knows if there will be an NBA…

  6. Why isn’t Barkley in NBA 2K12? Money.

    NBA 2K12, by putting 15 legends of the NBA into this year’s game, sparked a little debate — which 15 guys should be in? It’s easy to say Michael Jordan and Magic, but when it gets to around 15 the lines are not so clear. Especially when you know the game makers are giving extra…

  7. Video: Watch the trailer for NBA 2K12

    NBA 2K12

    We told you earlier today that NBA 2K12 was going to be filled with NBA legends. And I’m pumped because come this winter that and my men at Long Beach State may be the only hoops fix I get. So, we thought we’d bring you the trailer for the game, too. Enjoy. Magic looks good.…

  8. NBA 2K12 to have 15 legends of the game added

    NBA 2K12

    Last season, NBA 2K11 brought back vintage Michael Jordan, let you control His Airness and match his best Bulls teams against today’s teams. Even the Timberwolves. It worked so well, 2K Sports (the company that makes the game) is taking it to the next level. We showed you the covers to this year’s game —…

  9. Dr. J sued for defrauding elderly woman

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    “Dr. J” Julius Erving has had his share of off-court affairs go public, notably an affair with a sportswriter that resulted in a daughter. But his latest scandal is considerably more disheartening to the image fans have of Erving as a statesman for the game. The New York Post reports: Legendary basketball player Julius Erving…

  10. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Moses Malone and Julius Erving watch the game

    It was where Dr. J soared, where Charles Barkley banged and balled, where the fans were close and let the players know it. From both teams. It’s where the Philadelphia Flyers pummeled everyone they could, where more concerts took place than can be remembered. And now, the Philadelphia Spectrum is no more. Today a wrecking…

  11. Dr. J learns to skateboard

    Sep 22, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    Converse is putting out a series of these — name skateboard pros teaching NBA legends how to ride the board. Or do tricks. But you can’t teach an old Dr. new tricks, it turns out.

  12. 30 years ago today Dr. J was flying

    May 11, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    Dr. J was graceful. The game in the 1970s into the 1980s was evolving, Magic was just bringing Showtime and up tempo to the sport. It was moving from grinding toward beautiful (despite a setback in the 1990s). Guys were really just starting to play above the rim consistently (there had been a few guys,…

  13. The 1980 NBA Finals: Back when the Sixers were good, but Magic was better

    May 9, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Just for fun Mother’s Day Sunday trip down memory lane. Here is a look back at the 1980s NBA Finals. It gave us two iconic moments, one the Dr. J behind the backboard scoop shot, and then Magic Johnson’s Game 6 at center. Relax and enjoy a little trip back down memory lane to when…
