Former high-flying NBA Forward Julius “Dr. J” Erving reveals in his new autobiography, “Dr. J.,” that being a father for the first time wasn’t planned. During his playing days in Philadelphia, he writes, the mother of his soon-to-be child helped him “unwind” after feeling high strung or stressed.
“I can drive over and spend a relaxing evening that might even include oral sex,” Erving continued, per the New York Post’s Page Six. “I can only remember one time that we actually had intercourse, and that was because she had just gotten this new orthodontia to straighten her teeth. With wire and gleaming metal bristling in her mouth, oral sex was not an option.”
With “dome” out of the equation, Erving and his play buddy decided to knock boots instead.
The result–a baby girl.
Erving doesn’t have much of a relationship with his daughter, Alexandra Stephenson (pictured below), a former professional tennis player. The two only met in 2008 after Stephenson initiated the meeting.
Stephenson achieved a high ranking of No. 18 in the world during her career. She was never able to duplicate the success of reaching the semifinals at Wimbledon in 1999.
When Alexandra was born, Erving was married and wanted nothing to do with his daughter. A lot of this stemmed from protecting his image and the feelings of his wife, who supposedly didn’t want him having involvement with the child.
At least he’s being honest, but maybe Dr. J would’ve been better off keeping this particular story under wraps. We can only wonder how Alexandra and her mother feel about being put on blast like this. Sheesh Dr J. , a real jerk move if you ask us.
