MediaTakeOut.com just learned that a new unauthorized biography of L.A.Lakers legend Jerry West is coming ot this week by author Roland Lazenby. The book, entitled Jerry West: The Life and Legend of a Basketball Icon had an possibly EXPLOSIVE revelation in it about Magic Johnson
Here is the exact excerpt word-for-word:
That November, as a new season was set to open, Magic Johnson announced to the world that he was HIV positive, a stunning event that brought revelations about the climate of sexual frivolity around the Lakers. Johnson admitted he had been sleeping with 300-500 people a year.
The team’s locker room, and its sauna, had been a place where the star and other players had entertained women, even right after games. Johnson would retire to the sauna after a game, have sex, then put on a robe and return to the locker room for his post-game media interviews. How far had the team gone in condoning such questionable behavior? ‘I cared,’ West said in his interviews for this book. ‘I did things for those guys. It was ridiculous, some of the things I did for those guys. If the public knew they’d be outraged. It was a pretty crazy period for us.
WTF????? Why did they say PEOPLE and not WOMEN??? We know that in the past, Magic was ADAMANT in saying that he's ONLY slept with women.
Seems like this author is trying to start some kinda mess. . .
'cause when you're tore up you really don't know and you hope you're screwing the right ***...nothing new...we may be old but we've been there...ha!
Thats *** up damnnnnnnn
*** Fred! you have 0 shame huh? Weren't you jusr congratulating this man not so long ago by creating positive threads about him with his fam or on him purchasing Jet mag so now you feel the need to do this? smh
THATS *** GROSS HE LOOK LIKE HE DID TO IF TRUE...
***PILLOW-BITER*** THAT'S ALL I GOTTA SAY ABOUT THAT!!!
Just cause it says people doesn't mean their talking about men. MTO y'all love mess, I just wish he would tell in his book how this man looks so healthy after having HIV for some many years.
Magic is heathy looking person to have Hiv!
Even if this is true? this is very much past so leave him alone rather than tarnish this man's rep.
He's living a healthy life,alongside his fam,business saavy & doing for his community so stfu!
EWWWWWW. WHO WOULD WANT TO SLEEP WITH HIM HE WAS UGLY WAY BACK THEN AN STILL IS I GUESS GROUPIES DNT CARE OBVIOUSLY... HE PROLLY GAVE HELLA CHICKS THE VIRUS BEFORE HE FOUND OUT HE HAD IT... SAD SAD SAD
worst kept secret of all time. magic was ALWAYS involved in this type of behavior. just ask isaiah and jordan. he even got ron harper (ex *** and lakers player) involved in his chifer. listen people, its REALLY difficult to catch HIV while being intimate with a hetero who is a true hetero, get me? so now figure out the obvious.
Why do people come out years later trying to capitilize off someone elses fortune or mis-fortune? People are pathetic!
"Magic was ANIMATE in saying that he's ONLY slept with women."
I think the word your looking for MTO is "adamant". Who writes this ***?
Do u believe in Majic
ya'll knw theres way more NBA players, rappers, actors, all that, that are *** as fu*k. i kno p. diddy is. that *** *** ***
The only one on that team who wasn't doing a triple double a *** was AC green.
magic said this his *** self when he told the world on national tv that he was hiv pos
where the news at bruh
that's nasty even if it was just women...
ARE ALL ATHLETES ***? IM STARTING TO THINK MARRYING ONE OF THEM IS NOT WORTH THE $$$
YEAH AND NOW THE PUBLIC KNOWS AND ARE OUTRAGED. 300-500 WAY TOO MANY IN A LIFETIME. (SHEESH)
So his wife only had him for herself after he got infected... Hmmm?
I think all that porking is just nasty...
But you know this is what alot of these rappers and musisians do i wonder how many of em actually rap it up???
HE PROBABLY HAD 3SOMES..ANYWAYS WHO CARES..ITS OLD NEWS.HIS HIV ISNT GOING TO GO AWAY BY REPORTING THIS...SO NEXT!!
Ok he was a celebrity!!!! Everyone gets $ and let it get to their head. Some ppl just have to learn the hard way like he did
People can = MEN/WOMEN who kno's... So stfu like yall were there when he was sleeping with PEOPLE
Just stop it, for real. What shoulda been said? Animals? That's how "people" talk. Example, "how many people have you slept with?"
dayum follow me ontwittier jbuie19
Hence the reason why his ballz are on fire!
i kno not every1 is the same...but i would nevr fuq a famous person. not that serious.
NOTHING CAN SHOCK ME ANYMORE ABOUT ANYONE
No Fred it's your *** ass trying to start some mess....@ realroxanne..choke on a black di.ck an die....have a good day though...I'm out....
Why are people still under this stupid idea that you have to hoe around to catch HIV the truth is that u can catch it the first time u ever have *** if your not safe that myth or whatever it is gives a bad impression to those who know no better i.e the young MTO please don't have these young girls thinking that they won't catch *** unless there a hoe
@Jbeast1...Who is that on the Sports illustrated?
Man get the *** outta here MTO..yall wildin wit that ***. Anything for a story tho I guess =/
Follow ya folk on Twitter @FarrowRdBoi
Always someone coming out of the woodwork years later with the so-called true story of someone elses life! As for MTO....you guys are pathetic two-faced ***! You praise, then you tear down!
well he was a *** addict?!?
Seems Like He Was Givin EveryBody Tha Touch Of Magic!.. lol
I guess they didn't call him Magic Johnson for no reason
HE DESERVE H.I.V....
Ewww, Sleeping with 300-500 people a year...How very negroidian. And we are shocked he contracted the virus...SMDH
Screwing that many people, your bound to catch something. Lets be serious.
This is just trifling. And any man who thinks that it's cool to sleep with that many people is plain disgusting, and deserving of whatever disease they catch. It's the people like Magic that keep AIDS alive. It's crazy that Magic Johnson, Walt Chamberlain, Warren Beaty, and the countless other celebrity men that have slept with thousands are women (while married or not), are being glorified, while Tiger Woods has to apologize to the world. This is some ***$@@ and Cookie is an ***. No amount of money in the world would make me stay with a man that tried to kill me with his infected ***.
I wonder if JayO'Holiday slept with him...lol
More of these man *** got stds/aids than they let on. It aint only Magic. They passing around the same dirty skanks. From Magic to Jordan to Kobe to Tiger...same nasty std hoes!
*** im through with you lol
just like almost any player nba
I'm sorry magic but you was a straight up hoe. 300-500 ppl thats waaaaay too many.
Who laughin at that *** it aint even funny *** your past its abou wats goin now the world moves forward not bac ward hes doin dam good for a hiv victim an he keepin the money comin mto hate if u want
And that's why he has HIV now.
Wow, That's crazy...
Well I bet he regretted all of it
Then again u gotta wonder how many groupies he prolly infected also...
Eww nasty meat. Now all the men and women he raw dogged plus the men and women who raw dogged the one's Magic raw dogged has HIV. One person can infect a whole community.
Maybe that's how he got it...
He must have had a few orgies in that ***! Was he that chunky when he played, or did he take that pic after retirement?
r u 4-real? how come his wife ain't got it? must b nice 2 have $$$$$. y other folks dyin' from it, they got money 2-get rid of it
um ewww....do celebs have any self pride
And that's why he got the monster. I believe he still got it. I wish more hoes would get it and get it quicker. Maybe then people will stop whoring around.
...His behavior was typical of a professional athlete...No surprises here...
WAIT A MINUTE, WAIT A MINUTE, You mean to tell me Magic was swinging both ways?????
Magic and Isiah sitting in a tree, ***-i-s-s-i-***-g
All have to do carry condoms in pocket b4 have *** with... Simple!
@bkswagg360 Dont try follow my *** name ya heard me! Change ya own name and get *** outta here!!!
He seems like the type of guy who's helped a lot of people out. If I'm right about that, now would be a good time for them to return the favour. He probably has a good idea of who is real friends are now. I hope that he can be successful again, get solid financial advice, and take care of himself.
Sorry, the above post was for Sinbad. But hey, it probably applies to Magic as well!
I didn't mean to sound crass but this is ridiculous. People act like they are exempt from getting diseases and act like they have a sense of entitlement. I don't respect people like that and whatever they get, oh well.
You know what's sad??? How HIV/ AIDS is spreading like "gossip" and yet and still People Men and Women (some) are still whoring around! I don't get it. Boy I tell you!.....and what makes it so bad is that a lot of times these Men have good Women at Home and cheat and catch something then the *** you cheat with don't have to deal with you at the end of the day your WIVES do! Good Woman who decides to stick by your stupid azz when you go out, cheat and bring home a SUPRISE sad!
300-500 people, yeah right. Anyone with a brain could do the math and see that it's a lie. Even the low end of 300 would mean at leat one person each day for 300 of 365 days a year and taking into account time at home, nba scheduling with the flight time involved,public appearances etc it doesn't jive, and with 365 days in a year 400-500 would be virtually impossible.
STAY IN SCHOOL.....
I wonder if women are still thirsty enough to sleep with Magic.
You know why they said "people." That's been out there for years.
I'll never forget when it was first announced that he had AIDS, they showed a home movie of a pool party he was having. It had guys there and a lot of women. It was freaknic all day long. Magic and this other guy was looking all up this woman's @ss. Anyway, I'm not going to speculate on him being with guys. Whatever, who gives a dam!
If i'm not mistaken...women are people.
I KNEW IT!!! THAT EXPLAINS IT ALL!! I REALLY DO HOPE HE DIDNT SPREAD IT 2 HIS FAMILY
UmMp UmMp ump! Sad
magic wasnt playin..
scream at me ladies!!!
Another classless blackman. Blackmen treat blackwomen just like the whiteman did 200 years ago. To blackmen, sistas are just *** objects.
Blackwoman are giving blackmen too much power to abuse and use FOR ***. Blackmen really see blackwoman as *** objects. Most blackwoman are too fooled and caught up in black culture that they cant see this. Thats why most get played.
Um Idk if I wanna talk badd about sumone wif a disease as serious as aids but ew wtf? No wonder... Lawd Forgive Me.
HA! 2 ur comment & please, I don't even wanna start about your avi! U play toooooo much!
stop over analyzing
That's wrong on so many levels... SMDH!
WHO THE..IN THE HELL DON'T KNOW ..THAT MAGIC JOHNSON IS ***!MAGIC USE TO DATE SINGER JERMAINE STEWART WHO DIED OF A.I.D.S. IN THE EARLY 90'S.THERE ARE SO MANY *** MEN TRAPPED IN HETEROSEXUAL RELATION
No wonder he always looked greazy.
gtfoh..the newest stereotype of black males is that we're all undercover fay-gets. anybody buying this *** is mentally enslaved with no hope of ever being free. f'*** bootlickin toms.
Playing with fire will surely get yo a$$ burned
Ummm yeah. He could have engaged in *** activity. That would NOT suprise me.
i heard he was doing men to and besides he look alittle fruity back then
I'm sure all of those people weren't "women"
@runningwithscissors, wow if thats true. He has HIV. This is believable. Its easy for an athlete to have *** with many women in the same day. Some of these men have females waiting for them in their hotel rooms. Stop being naive. A majority of these females were probably white. Black women are not allowed near these athletes.
@ MufasaMandingo Maybe your mammi shops at rent a center but my house is laid flat screen and leather only the best "all" paid for including my car and, I work 60 hours a week just cause the birds you flock around are like that be careful before you generalize and I do my own hair ignorant idiot!!!
its not immpossible to *** 300 to 500 "people". in magics' case, it was a light number: gene simmons(kiss)-5,000 women, wilt chamberlain(ex basketball player)-10,000 women, engelbert humperdink (singer)-2,000 women,lemmy kilmister (singer for motorhead)-5,000 women, julio iglesias (singer)-400 women, and shaq (basketball)-over 100 women during his time at LSU.no one infected with a deadly STD but magic.....hummmmmm, someone (MAGIC) is leaving out details of his lifestyle.
He was the number one person spreading HIV!
Lil Wayne has him beat.
OMG. He's very strong. His profile and photos were found on the millionaire & celebrity dating club *** UK wealthy single C om *** last week! 'He is very picky about girls,' according to the officials of the site, "they have to be beautiful or hot, otherwise he would ignore them!"
Dayum Magic, they said people; Dont know but MAgic looks hella healthy now, i guess them millions made that HIV go away!!!
Wowzers....Either way ...Ewwww!!!!
Wow no wonder he caught it, he's lucky his wife stood by him
Happens all the time! Most women aren't hard to get it's not all the men fault!!!!!
yo whoeva is coming up wit these parodies of JayoHoliday is effin hilarious, bet this dude will think twice bout being first everydayum day! how do u be first everyday? lol goto work ***! anyways Magic,needa share his magic potion wit some ppl in Africa since he "cured"
follow me : covergirllovely
lol @loch "who is Jerry West?" wtf? u must not be a basketball fan dude... if so u must be a complete idiot... all them jordan jersey's in your closet got Jerry West in the NBA logo!!! lmao GOOGLE Jerry west dumb dumb
MAN I DONT BELEVE THAT...AINT NOWAY
Wow!!! Now I know that some may lie & exagerate the truth at times, but that is way too many lovers for one single person to have...Sad to say that he contracted hiv, but what do u expect after all of that? Thank God that hes ok, & to all who judge, remember to rap it up urself, because protection helps...((Flirting isnt the same as sexing the universe)) <<He say, she say, 3way foreplay>>
Anybody remember the Isiah kiss prior to the All-Star game (I think). Who initiates the kiss? YouTube it.
Y'all have to remember that during this time, AIDS was thought to be contracted and spread by *** men, hemophiliacs, IV drug users, and Haitians. Then again...the Haitian mess may have been stopped being said by the government at that time. No one thought women could get or give HIV. Now we know it's also about ANAL ***, regardless of the gender of the people involved.
And if Magic is bisexual, So *** what ? Grow up, MTO folk. Some people are ***/bisexual. Get over it.
Lol @ ppl :)
SMH *** MAGIC YOU KEEP *** ON PEOPLE AND THEY GONNA KEEP EXPOSING YOUR ***
magic ain't never had aids..
Most of these guys everyone thinks are straight aren't always are, but it doesn't matter he's a great businessman, philanthropist, father and husband now. This book is decades late and not worth it.
300-500 people...damm...all women Humm
I say leave the past in the past! Magic has paid for his sexual sin and hopefully living a better life.
PEOPLE HUH?????? THAT'S A BIT SUSPECT, ya know dudes are people too?......
Ok thats just nasty and then have the nerve to sleep and kiss ur wife in the mouth afterwards. SHe is a beter women then me knowing about alot of that stuff he was doing and still hanging in there.
ARENT WOMAN PEOPLE 2?? LOL
Magic is the greatest player of all - time and a great man. He did all that before he was married.
What is up with Jerry West, it seems like West is jealous of Magic. West get a life you suck you only won 1 championship. Mr Clutch?? 2 championship?
I BEEN BEAT THAT NUMBER!!!
Gross. an athlete or celeb is the lat person I would sleep with,cause there is just no telling how many *** they ran up in
@the dutch...ummm...thats NOT cute!
Cookie nasty too, cause Majic was bi way back then and she still married him. She should know the AIDS monter don't slow a real freak down. Right now he ain't got *** to loose. He probably still gettin it in on the down low, male or female!
I meant monster...
"Cuz we don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time oh no". We can laught and party all *** and drink some cherry wine uh huh! I used to love that song back in da *** day...
I believe it alot of Bball are on the DL
follow me on twitter.com/Ms_KayJay
man leave magic the fugg alone he doing so much for the black community oh yeah that"s probably the dayum reason mofos wanna bring him down! and i got to disagree with one commentator first jerry west is far from a loser! the nba logo happens to be him. one of the greatest ever but michael jordan is the best nba player of ALL time!!
Magic's sexual preferences have long been rumored about; he always kisses Isaiah and there were other rumors circulating that he liked boyz....who knows? Who really cares?
i dunno if anybody notices but some of the most successful people in the public eye are ***. Oprah. Ellen. Michael Jackson. And plenty more who prefer to bed with someone whos got the same genitals that they do. So im not surprised by this story.
@ Mizzglass, how do you know the sexual preferences of Oprah and Michael Jackson? Neither of them have ever said that they're ***. I agree that a lot of celebs @ one time or another practice some kind of an alternate lifestyle but to just assume any1 or every1 lives their lives a certain way just b/c they are rich or famous is very sterotypical and ignorant. The media will publish a lot of bs info and photos to sway society to believe or not believe in any certain thing or person. All journalism is NOT credible. A wise person will believe none of what he hears and only half of what he sees.
Well now we know where his HIV came from. I mean *** 300-500 people a year? I mean *** he was really getting it in.
