The Announcement-Magic's shocking HIV news

The Announcement-Magic's shocking HIV news
Twenty years ago, one of the best things that happened to basketball, Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, announced that he was HIV positive. ESPN is doing a documentary on how this singular act affected his life, that of his family, friends and all of us all. To put this in context, this was a period when we didn't know as much as we did about the virus now.
Hear Magic after the announcement: “I would call people, ‘Let’s work out.’ They always had something to do. ‘Oh no, I can’t right now because I’ve got to get ready for the game or whatever.’ Can you imagine that? I played one-on-one my whole life and now I’m looking for someone to play one-on-one with.”sad smiley
I remember thinking back then: 'Magic is going to die soon'smiley in tears 
Well, he is still very much around! I guess it boils down to the saying: Get busy living or get busy dying. Magic chose the former. This is the greatest 'trick' this 'Magician' will ever pullhappy smiley
The documentary premieres on March 11on ESPN.
