Magic Johnson & Isiah Thomas Reconcile
True friendship is a bond that can never be broken.
After feuding for over 2 decades, Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas have finally reconciled.
Via CBS Sports:
Hall of Famers Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas’ relationship began to deteriorate after the Lakers and Pistons met in back-to-back NBA Finals in 1988 and 1989.
Things went further south a few years later, when Magic fought to keep Thomas off the 1992 Dream Team. Magic admitted in a book that he co-authored with Larry Bird and Jackie MacMullan that he helped keep Thomas off the team because he felt Thomas had spread rumors about his sexuality in 1991 after he announced that he had contracted the HIV virus.
Emotions and tears flowed as the two NBA legends sat down together on NBATV’s Players Only Monthly special, which aired on Tuesday night.
Magic told Isiah:
This has been a tremendous day.
My wife, my mother, my father have been saying y’all need to get back together. So when everybody called, I said no question we’re going to do this. And just to sit across from you and relive those moments of fun, excellence, working hard, dreaming big.
Who sits up at 19 or 21 dreaming of stuff we wanted to do and now we are here doing it.
You are my brother. Let me apologize if I hurt you, that we haven’t been together and God is good to bring us back together.
That’s when Isiah broke down and the former besties embraced and wept.
It was truly a healing and beautiful moment to witness.
Look at God.
