: 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. . .
Damn 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
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 bulls 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 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 sex 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 shit unless there a hoe
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 BullS$@@ and Cookie is an ass. No amount of money in the world would make me stay with a man that tried to kill me with his infected penis.
Who laughin at that shit it aint even funny fuck 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
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.
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 whores 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'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!
Another classless blackman. Blackmen treat blackwomen just like the whiteman did 200 years ago. To blackmen, sistas are just sex objects.
Blackwoman are giving blackmen too much power to abuse and use FOR SEX. Blackmen really see blackwoman as sex objects. Most blackwoman are too fooled and caught up in black culture that they cant see this. Thats why most get played.
@runningwithscissors, wow if thats true. He has HIV. This is believable. Its easy for an athlete to have sex 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 sex 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.
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!"
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 nigga! anyways Magic,needa share his magic potion wit some ppl in Africa since he "cured"
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
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>>
Y'all have to remember that during this time, AIDS was thought to be contracted and spread by gay 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 sex, regardless of the gender of the people involved.
And if Magic is bisexual, So fukkin what ? Grow up, MTO folk. Some people are gay/bisexual. Get over it.
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?
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 shit 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 night and drink some cherry wine uh huh! I used to love that song back in da damn day...
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!!
i dunno if anybody notices but some of the most successful people in the public eye are gay. 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 gay. 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.
