Dr. J Bobblehead Looks Like It’s Modeled After His Famous Cradle Dunk

There was quite a bit of excitement a couple of weeks back when the Sixers announced that they’d have three classic bobblehead giveaways in the month of March. Well if you head on over to today — yes, we did actually do that — you can see the first image of the Julius Erving, Allen Iverson, and Wilt Chamberlain figurines.

Iverson is sporting some cornrows with a headband look while Wilt has a nice goatee thing going on. The Dr. J one is the most interesting to me, however, as it appears to be modeled after Erving’s legendary “cradle dunk” which you can watch below.

I realize the uniform colors from the Doc bobble and the below video are off, but I just want to believe, okay? Also, all three of them kind of look like Lou Williams to me.

Wilt – March 2
Doc – March 16
A.I. – March 30
