"When The Game Was Ours" We Used To Kiss?
"I wish he would have had the courage to say this stuff to me face to face, as opposed to writing it in some damn book to sell and he can make money off it,” Thomas told Sports Illustrated.
"Magic Johnson", co-wrote the book with former Celtics forward "Larry Bird" and author Jackie MacMullan. "Majic" says that "Isaiah Thomas" questioned his sexuality and spread rumors that he was gay after "Magic Johnson" tested positive for HIV.
Magic says:“The one guy I thought I could count on had all these doubts,” Johnson wrote. “It was like he kicked me in the stomach.''
Thomas says: the accusation came as a shock. The former Piston’s point guard and Hall of Famer denied talking behind Johnson’s back, especially about AIDS, which he says claimed the life of his brother five years ago.
Magic also revealed his role in blackballing Thomas from the 1992 Olympic Dream Team along with Michael Jordan and players like Karl Malone and Scottie Pippin.
"I'm glad that he's finally had the nerve and the courage to stand up and say it was him, as opposed to letting Michael Jordan take the blame for it all these years,'' Thomas said.
