Woolridge, who was addicted to drugs himself, used to tell my mom all the time of Magic's get down(s) up until he retired in 91'. The forum club was turnt up, and turned everybody out. Magic (along with his teammates, other pros, celebrities, etc.) were doing drugs, (Not Weed either) having sex with men and women, orgy like, swinger like stuff. Magic would come out the forum club sweating, smiling, and flocks of men and women followed. These players and celebs had wives and husbands and didn't care either. (That's a story for another time.)
The HIV article that was posted, points to Homosexuality as the cause for AIDS and that HIV is borderline harmless. I for one, agree to a degree simply because I believe that AIDS, HIV, Weed, and a load of other things are just media hype and propaganda. If you don't know about HIV, AIDS, etc. and all you hear is that it's an "Epidemic" and that "HIV leads to AIDS" of course you're going to believe that. So, with that being said I believe that Magic either contracted HIV (a virutally harmless virus) from a male, or didn't contract it at all and it was big lie/cover up.
As for Mike, Orlando was a teammate of his early in his career and told my mom's friend about the severity of Mike's gambling and straight from him, almost all of what that story on the first page says about mike checks out with what Orlando said about him. Gambling with killers, in debt millions of dollars, point shaving, all checked out. NBA is a sick and cold game man.
It's crazy to me how ppl can say something is propaganda, sensationalism, conspiracy, or an out right lie, etc. but then instead of taking the next logical step in investigating and researching whether or not their claim is right they just go ahead and believe in their irrational skepticism and look for other like minded views to strengthen and support their ignorance. I would ask or tell you to some thorough research on AIDs/HIV so you could "discover" the connection but I guess you'd just say they've spread the false information everywhere so everyone can believe it.
@ HIV leading to AIDs being media hype or some kind of plain sight massive lie to fool the public.
Still can't believe you grouped weed with HIV.
@imvictor's post. I love going raw but these dudes out here lying to themselves.
