A documentary on Dr. J will premiere on June 10 on NBATV. To preview the feature, Carmelo Anthony shared his thoughts on one of his childhood idols.
“He was one of my favorite players ever. What you were able to bring to the game of basketball I don’t think will ever be done again from how smooth you played the game of basketball. Everybody wanted to be Dr. J. Everybody wanted the fro. The style of the game, the way you played the game, everybody wanted to do that and nobody will ever be called Dr. J again.” – Carmelo Anthony
