Basketball superstar Julius ‘Dr. J’ Erving

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

In an interview, Julius Erving discusses his motivation for his continued success.

“Well I think right now I’m a young man in terms of my perspective about life. At 34 years of age, you know, you can’t think about just stopping at that age, it’s a very tender age. Most of the friends who I relate to closest in life you know are 40 or older, and they inspire me and give me something to look forward to. I think my greatest challenges in life are going to come after playing basketball,” says Julius Erving
