We’ve heard of “blame it on the alcohol.”
But blame it on the braces?
Julius Erving in his new autobiography says that his daughter, tennis player Alexandra Stevenson, would have never been born had her mother, Samantha Stevenson, not gotten braces to fix her teeth, according to Page Six of the New York Post.
The book is to be released on Tuesday.
Here’s how it’s reported on Page Six:
Erving tells how he met Samantha Stevenson — whom he describes on the page as “a smart single woman — a pretty white girl, a bit of a hippie giving off a vibe of availability” — in 1978 when she was covering the Philadelphia 76ers for Sport magazine.
“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.”
We know it’s your autobiography, Doc. But it’s not exactly a self-esteem booster when the child you fathered learns that she’s only around because her mom had braces.
You never heard of a condom?
