Julius Erving inspired me to create this work. Philadelphians considered Julius Erving a celebrity; because he won the NBA championship for Philadelphia. I remembered he helped the 76er’s win NBA Championships during the 1980s. The 76ers won The National Basketball Association Championship in 1983. I watched as Julius Erving and Moses Malone defeated The LA Lakers during the seven-game series. I admired Julius Erving because of his special skills and athleticism on the court. He was the one of the best NBA basketball player of his era. Everyone wanted to play like Julius Erving because of his slam dunk and dribbling. We tried to mimic his style on the court. Philadelphia was proud as I watched the parade on Market street.
