Julius Erving Net Worth: Julius Erving is a retired American basketball player who has a net worth of $16 million. Julius Erving known as "Dr J" built his net worth playing pro basketball and launching a modern style of leaping and plays above the rim. Born Julius Winfield Erving II on February 22, 1950, in Nassau County, New York, he is best appreciated for launching the modern style of play called "slam dunk" that emphasizes leaping and play above the rim. A high school and college basketball star, Erving got his nickname "The Doctor" and "Dr. J" thanks to his flamboyance and skill on the court. After two successful varsity college basketball seasons, he left college to play in the now-defunct American Basketball Association (ABA). He joined the league in 1971 as an undrafted free agent with the Squires. Since, he has started to make history as one of the most gifted players and one of the biggest draws at the box office. After he spent five years with the ABA, he joined the NBA where he stayed for another prolific 11 years with the Philadelphia 76ers. With Erving in the team, the team won the 1983 championship. He retired from the sport in 1987 with 30,026 career points in both leagues and ranking third on the all-time scoring list. A remarkable leaper, he was one of the first key practitioners of the move later exemplified by Michael Jordan. After he left the court, Julius Erving went on to become a successful business executive, TV sport analyst and executive with the Orlando Magic.
