NBA TV “The Doctor” debuted last night and it was an excellent documentary. The only faults was it ignored some of Dr. J’s personal failings such as his secret love child and bad business dealings.
The basketball side of it was excellent though.
It really gave you that feeling that Dr. J was a mythical figure and the legend maybe greater than the reality. That’s why I liked the way they ended the documentary. Dr. J says he dunks once a year to see if he can still do it. They provide a video, but doesn’t let you know if he completes the dunk or not.
It looks like it is going in, but he seems to be losing it a bit at the end.
The Legend continues.
