JULIUS ‘DR J’ ERVING
Julius Erving, the great and wondrous “Dr. J,” was the dominant player of his era, an innovator who changed the way the game was played. Widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of his time, he is often considered to have been the main catalyst for the ABA-NBA merger in 1976 and is credited with taking the slam dunk mainstream. Over the course of his career, Erving won three championships, four MVP awards in the ABA and NBA, three scoring titles with the ABA and NBA, was a 16-time All Star and retired as the third highest scorer in pro basketball history with 30,026 career points. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1993 and named to the NBA’s 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.
A gracious, dignified and disciplined man, Erving was an ideal ambassador for the game. His actions off the court have proven to be as inspiring as his athletic achievements. Since Erving’s retirement from the NBA, he has made it his personal mission to affect change, make a difference in the lives of others, and give back to the athletic and African American communities. In recent years, he has supported numerous causes and organizations including the American Cancer Society, The Salvation Army, March of Dimes, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Alliance for Lupus Research, The Boys and Girls Club, The University of Massachusetts, Widener University, and Philadelphia University.
