I can see Kemp now. "Why ya gotta make a brother look bad!? I'm a better dunker anyways."

Great story. I was wondering what happened to her after the story broke out that Dr J was her father.

"I wanted to meet her and see her, and I played it out a lot of times in my mind how it would go, the hits I would have to take and the surprise factor," Erving says. "But then it kept falling from the list of priorities for me, and I just didn't get it done.

so his own daughter wasn't a priority for him... and we are applauding it...

for two... he was still committing acts of infidelity with his wife after this whole mess

Quote:
Erving's marriage to Turquoise was eroding and, adding to the mayhem, Julius had just become the father of a newborn son, Jules, with another woman, Dorýs Madden

for three... he didn't reach out for her, she reached out to him...

and four... she reached out to him for MONEY and ENDORSEMENT CONTACTS...

Quote:
But Alexandra was desperate for help now, on pace to earn only $35,000 for the year. She needed someone who could find her sponsors, someone who had contacts. And Julius had to have contacts. He'd been hamming it up in Dr. Pepper commercials. He was loved all over the world. They'd heard and seen it. They'd lived it. So they asked Pate for her father's phone number.

so why does this deserve applause? because a man NEVER contacted his daughter until she contacted him... and the only reason she contacted him was for MONEY... please. this is crap and neither dr. j nor her deserve applause.
