This time from some rag called The New York Times:
I thought it was fitting that Thorn mentioned Kidd and Julius Erving, the indomitable Dr. J., in the same breath. The difference between Kidd and Erving was that Dr. J. led the Nets to a pair of championships (both in the A.B.A.). And while rings might not define a career, a player’s legacy is greatly enhanced by championships precisely because so few players ever win one.
Dr. J. led the Nets to a pair of championships in a now-extinct league with seven teams. I'm so happy this trade has gone through so the New York media can go back to reminding us that A-Rod hates winning.
