Default Dr J. to guest star on The Office January 17

'The Office': Julius 'Dr. J' Erving to guest -- EXCLUSIVE
Julius Erving, a.k.a. Dr. J, has a new teammate, and his name is… Jim Halpert? The basketball Hall of Famer will guest-star as himself on The Office, EW has learned. In the episode, Dr. J becomes an investor in the sports marketing business that Jim (John Krasinski) is trying to launch in Philadelphia, where Erving scored more than a few baskets as a 76er. And as you can see in the photo below, the 62-year-old legend winds up showing Jim a thing or two on the court.
The episode featuring Dr. J — who played a minister in Lifetime’s remake of Steel Magnolias this fall — will air Jan. 17 on NBC.
