Hall of Famer and Knicks legend Earl Monroe sat down with SportsJam host Doug Doyle to talk about his new book "Earl the Pearl: My Story" and his early days in South Philly.

Monore played for two NBA teams, the Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks. Both teams have retired Monroe's number. Due to his on-court success and flashy style-of-play, Monroe was given the nicknames "Black Jesus" and "Earl the Pearl".
