Magic Johnson

When Magic Johnson’s HIV test was positive in 1991, he shocked the world when he announced his sudden retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers after 13 seasons. Although he was ill, Magic was not done. He came back to play in the 1995-1996 season, averaging 15 points, seven assists and six rebounds per game.
