In the Beginning

In my beginning there was Julius Erving, no MJ, Sir Charles, or Kobe, just the man who changed the way the basketball would be played forever.  He brought the flash and creativity of the ABA into the NBA in 1976 and finished his professional basketball career in 1987 having scored the fifth most points in professional basketball history "30,026" and having won the NBA championship in 1983.  He was amazing, the prototype for many players to come and he was simply known as the Dr.  This is my ode to you because if not for your grace and creativity the game I love wouldn't be what it is today.  Thank you Dr. J for bringing the original and true swag to the NBA.
