What's Up, Doc? Upcoming NBA TV Doc On Erving Receives Positive Early Reviews
Published June 7, 2013
THROWING IT DOWN: In Philadelphia, Stan Hochman wrote it is a "fine film, especially for those too young to have seen Erving float above the rim." There is "tragedy mingled with the triumphs." There is "sadness," and "through it all, there is Erving's humility, his grace, his dignity" (PHILLY.com, 6/6). On Long Island, Neil Best writes under the header, "Documentary On Dr. J A Slam Dunk." Best: "Buckle up and tune in" (NEWSDAY, 6/7).
COMING MONDAY: NBAE VP/Original Production Dion Cocoros, who oversees the "Originals" documentary series, recently talked to THE DAILY about "The Doctor" and discussed Erving's importance to the NBA-ABA merger and the mystique that surrounds the HOFer even to this day. See Monday's issue of THE DAILY for the full interview.
