    1984 at the All-Star Game in Denver is when the NBA brought the Dunk Contest back (sort of, it was an old ABA thing). Dr. J was the favorite. Dominique Wilkins was competing. And Larry Nance won the thing. With a pretty cool dunk. I’m pretty sure the dunks themselves have not gotten much better…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

  7. 30 years ago today Dr. J was flying

    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,…

    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…
