    1972-73 Julius Erving Game Worn Atlanta Hawks Shorts. Julius Erving and Pistol Pete Maravich as teammates, how did the stars align to have these two on the court with the same team? The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks both drafted Dr. J in 1972 in hopes of landing the high flier. Erving joined the Hawks for training camp and participated in three exhibition games before going back to the Squires. Worn during his abbreviated stay with Atlanta are these "Russell [size] S" shorts. The red shorts have pinstripes around the waist and going down the sides. Two labels are sewn inside: Russell and a blank swatch with "Erving" written in black marker. A letter of provenance, on Hawks stationery, is signed by Joe O'Toole. O'Toole served as an athletic trainer for the Hawks. Letter of provenance from Atlanta Hawks. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
