On a hot summer day in 1976, Pat Williams had a brainstorm. Williams, general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, called Billy Melchionni, his counterpart with the New York Nets, and asked: "Would you consider trading Julius Erving?"

Two weeks ago, Byron Scott's New Jersey Nets blew a 21-point fourth-quarter lead over the Celtics, setting a playoff record and obliging them to sit around Boston for two miserable days, trying to find something on TV that didn't show them gagging. Then in their next game, they blew a 15-point lead. But did they run away or lose heart? N-o-o-o-o. So what if they're 0-1 in the NBA Finals? Nobody ever believed in them, anyway ...
