Even Erving's playing career was 50 percent mystery. He became an asphalt legend at the Rucker League in Harlem, and the documentary shows folks lining treetops and filling rooftops just to see him play.

Julius Erving was born in Hempstead, New York, in 1950.
He helped the New York Nets win the ABA championship in 19, before switching to the NBA and joining the Philadelphia 76ers.
