Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.

Julius "Dr. J" Erving and many other ABA players' ability to play above the rim made the NBA more exciting when the two leagues merged in 1976.

Even Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar couldn't stop Erving, who drived past Johnson along the baseline and finished with a one-handed jam over the outstretched arm Abdul Jabbar.

Check out the dunk below.
