Greatest Sports Legends: Julius ErvingBefore ESPN and before the internet, sports fans had simpler--yet, in many ways, just as fulfilling--ways to learn more about their favorite players. The syndicated program Greatest Sports Legends--created by Berl Rotfeld and later produced by his son Steve Rotfeld--profiled over 200 athletes from 1973 to 1993. I enjoyed all of those shows but regular visitors to this site will not be surprised that my favorite episode featured Julius "Dr. J" Erving:
This episode includes a clip of Grover Washington's "Let it Flow," a classic song that Washington composed as a tribute to Erving's incomparable playing style.
