An NBA legend, Julius Erving finished his basketball career with 30,026 points scored, 10,525 rebounds, and 5,176 assists en route to his enshrinement into the NBA Hall of Fame. Julius Erving could jump, run, shoot, score, dunk, play defense, rebound, and fill arena seats everywhere he played. "Dr. J's" game of in-your-face hoops appealed to everyone and he made the game cool to play and fun to watch. During his 16 scintillating seasons in both the ABA and NBA, Erving redefined the forward position. Opponents knew where Dr. J was going, but getting there to stop his offensive assault was another matter. Playing above the rim, Erving popularized taking flight as he danced through the air. His style and grace both on and off the court led many to call him an American treasure. A two-time ABA Most Valuable Player, Erving led the New York Nets to two ABA chionships. In 1976, Erving moved to the NBA and became a Philadelphia 76er. In 1983, he teamed with Moses Malone to lead the 76ers to the NBA chionship. His unique athleticism coupled with his star power made Dr. J a household name worldwide.A Philadelphia 76ers legend, fiery and effective performer, Billy Cunningham's exceptional and unusual leaping ability earned him the name the "Kangaroo Kid." An intense competitor who played with enormous desire, under Hall of Fame coach Dean Smith at the University of North Carolina, Cunningham took his place in the fabled UNC bloodlines. A fabulous collegian and pro player Cunningham shot to stardom when he was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1966. In 1967, he teamed with fellow Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain and Hal Greer to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA title. After playing for Philadelphia from 1965 to 1972, he signed a free agent contract with the ABA's Carolina Cougars and was named league MVP. Cunningham returned to the 76ers in 1974. In 1983, he coached the 76ers to the NBA crown. At 6-foot-7, Cunningham was one of the great undersized rebounders in basketball. When he retired in 1976, the 76ers retired his number 32 jersey.Each NBA basketball comes hand signed by both Julius Erving and Billy Cunningham in silver ink.
