    Feb 2, 2014, 9:14 PM EDT


    What do Dr. J and Bob Dylan have in common? Aside from both being total badass trail blazers? They were both in a commercial for a Chrysler that aired during the second half of the 2014 Super Bowl.

    David Stern is leaving the post he’s held at the top of the NBA for 30 years but he’s going to have some fun before he makes it official. Last night he stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to read a Top Ten List about some of the many, many things he’s learned…

    Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving was a guest on Bill Simmons podcast over at Grantland and it’s pretty damn awesome.

    We recently wrote about Dr. J appearing on the Colbert Report television program and telling a tale of how he was once set to play a basketball game with President Obama and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. So it was extra interesting today to learn that the President was once a 76ers fan, probably back when Julius…

    Julius Erving was a guest on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report last night to help promote his new book Dr. J, The Autobiography.

    Allen Iverson

    It was an announcement years in the making. We all knew it was coming. And yet Allen Iverson still has the ability to captivate us all. He told some stories. He showed the love for the coaches and players who helped make his career possible. He shed a few tears. And he reminded us of…

  8. GIF: Dr. J Gives Bill Walton an Old School Facial

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT


    Apropos of nothing, here’s a wonderful GIF of Julius Erving doing Bill Walton dirty back in the day. I believe the dunk is from Game 6 of the 1977 Finals. The Sixers lost that series to the Portland Trail Blazers in six games and Bill Walton was named Finals MVP but come on, that facial.…

  10. Go See “The Doctor”: Ten Cool Things About NBA TV’s Julius Erving Doc

    Jun 6, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT


    I have my beefs with a lot of NBA TV’s original programming–they’re mostly pretty uncreative with their ideas, and they play way too much of the same crap over and over again–but their original full-length are becoming must-watches for any basketball fan. Last year’s Dream Team doc was an absolute revelation–seriously, if you haven’t seen…
