With startling honesty and an unmistakable voice, Dr. J is a historic self-portrait of an American legend, Julius "The Doctor" Erving.

With his flights of improvisation around the basket and his towering afro, Julius Erving became one of the most charismatic (and revolutionary) players basketball has ever known. But while the public has long revered this cultural icon, few have ever known of the double life of Julius Erving. Dr. J traces the inner lives of the nearly perfect player and the imperfect man—and how he has come to terms with both.

Julius Erving is one of the greatest professional basketball players of all time and an American icon. He lives in Atlanta with his family. This is his first book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Fro good! As much as Julius Erving wowed us all on the basketball court, this autobio matches that wow factor. It's a refreshingly honest look at one of the game's greatest pioneers and his life on and off the court. His ABA days were of special interest to me and this does not disappoint as we see how wild and wacky that league was.
