The story of Julius Erving and his daughter Alexandra Stevenson has been well chronicled by now, but in short Stevenson, now 28 was conceived by Erving and Alexandra's mother Samantha out of wedlock, and Erving didn't meet her in person until last year. Alexandra, gained notoriety in 1999, when she reached the semifinals of Wimbledon, and due to the uncanny resemblance, the whispers began to be heard that she was Erving's biological daughter. Living in the public eye, brings with it unwanted cameras into personal lives, and Erving initially denied being her father, before finally acknowledging the truth.
Julius Erving finally was able to see his daughter play tennis in person this past week, and although she lost her match, it was another step in the developing relationship between father and daughter. Obviously 27 years of time cannot be recaptured, but Erving, now 59, is attempting to make amends with his daughter for the time that's been lost. Hopefully time will be on their side, and they'll have many years to forge a loving father/daughter bond.

This is old news by now, but just following up on my post from yesterday, Jamie Foxx did apologize on the "Tonight" show on Tuesday night for his comments about Miley Cyrus. Jamie called his "Foxxhole" show the "Black Howard Stern" and stated that he didn't want to lose his comedic license. Jamie ain't no fool.

All parties involved will have to have patience with this business endeavor, but I hear Mr. Johnson hates to lose money, which is probably why he's a billionaire.
African-American women, please get annual mammogram check ups. Mary, who is 60 states that the average age of detection is 61.
I guess Jamie forgot that he has a daughter not much younger that the 16 year-old Cyrus.

If this story is true, Isiah will be taking on a major challenge, as the team had a record of 13-20 last year. Good to see Isiah getting up and resuming his career in basketball.
