Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats did something amazing yesterday. I spent a portion the weekend watching clips of the 1977 Finals battle between Julius Erving's Philadelphia 76ers and Bill Walton's Portland Trailblazers, and Mullens' dunk reminded me so much of Dr. J that I had to go back a review the tape. Check out the clips below.
Exhibit A: Byron Mullens dunks over LaMarcus Aldridge (h/t to Ball Don't Lie).
Exhibit B: Julius Erving dunks over Bill Walton.
While Mullens' dunk isn't a perfect replica of Dr. J's, and Mullens isn't known
for doing this over and over again like Erving once did, both dunks above are still fun
to watch. Check out more from Dr. J below, and expect to see more historical comparisons on TBCB whenever the mood strikes.
