Julius Erving, former Philadelphia 76ers all-time basketball great, is the father of tennis player Alexandra Stevenson. According to an excerpt from Erving’s new autobiography, “Dr. J”, as noted at by Richard Johnson of the New York Post’s Page Six, the Doctor attributes the conception of Stevenson to some dental work.

"“She becomes someone who helps me unwind if I’m feeling high-strung or stressed. I can drive over and spend a relaxing evening that might even include oral sex,” Erving writes. “I can only remember one time that we actually had intercourse, and that was because she had just gotten this new orthodontia to straighten her teeth. With wire and gleaming metal bristling in her mouth, oral sex was not an option.”"

Samantha Stevenson was a writer covering the Philadelphia 76ers at the time for Sport Magazine. As always, the lesson here: braces can be costly.
