His nicknames included both "Earl The Pearl" and his Philadelphia nickname, "Black Jesus".

Earl Monroe is a former American professional basketball player known for his flamboyant dribbling, passing and play-making.

"The Pearl" could orchestrate a dazzling show on the basketball court. You'll find few basketball fans anywhere who don't fondly recall Monroe's twisting, spinning, faking, double-pumping, spin-dribbling moves as a member of the Baltimore Bullets and New York Knicks. Known for his flamboyant style, Monroe ignited both his teammates and fans wherever he played and whenever he stepped onto the court. His high school teammates at John Bartram High School called him "Thomas Edison" because of the many moves he invented while playing hour upon hour on the rough-and-tumble Philadelphia playgrounds.

In 1967, the two-time All-America was drafted by the Baltimore Bullets (now the Washington Wizards) in the first round of the NBA draft and made an immediate impact, earning NBA Rookie of the Year honors. In Baltimore, Monroe teamed with Hall of Famer Wes Unseld and led a Baltimore offense that featured one of the most spectacular fast breaks in the NBA. It was during "The Pearl's" Baltimore years that he became a cult hero.

On February 6, 1970, he set an NBA record with 13 points in one overtime in a double overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons: Its now the 2nd best ever.

In 1971, Monroe was traded to the talent-laden New York Knicks. He and Hall of Famer Walt Frazier were a celebrity backcourt and the duo gradually meshed together to form a formidable tandem full of razzle dazzle and spectacular, but fundamentally sound basketball. With Monroe, the Knicks won the 1973 NBA championship.

A four-time NBA All-Star, Monroe retired after the 1980 season due to serious knee injuries, which plagued Monroe throughout his career. He had played 926 NBA career games, scored 17,454 total points and dished out 3,594 assists. Monroe, who transformed the game into an exhilarating art form, had his number 15 jersey retired by the Knicks on March 1, 1986.

He scored over 1,000 points in 9 professional seasons including a career high 2,065 in the 1968-69 season.

In 1967, he won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in a season that included scoring 56 points in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers, the third-highest rookie total in NBA history at the time.

In 1990, he was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Monroe was named one of the 50 players on the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1996.

In recent years, he has been serving as a commentator for Madison Square Garden and as commissioner of the New Jersey Urban Development Corporation.
