Via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

The episode in November 1991 when Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers announced he was HIV-positive is recounted in a new book by Roland Lazenby, "Jerry West: The Life and Legend of a Basketball Icon."

writes that Johnson's announcement was "a stunning event that brought
revelations about the climate of sexual frivolity around the Lakers."

Johnson at the time said he had 300 to 500 sexual partners a year.

team's locker room, and its sauna, had been a place where the star and
other players had entertained women, even right after games," Lazenby
writes. "Johnson would retire to the sauna after a game, have sex, then
put on a robe and return to the locker room for his postgame media

Holy crap. These guys lived like rock stars.

I'll bet the 80s Celtics teams did the same. Not.

    eh, the 80’s celtics didnt have to go far to get laid either if i had to guess, theyre stars with money and fame, doesnt matter how ugly they were, the women came easy

    Retroactive jealousy, that’s a new one!

  • CFH

    Strange statement, even for a troll, considering what happened to Magic as a result…

    Wow-you spend more time here then Celtics fans. It’s no wonder that the Lakers fans hate you too. Bwahahahaa!!

    As long as you keep posting Laker news, the best fans in the NBA (the Laker fans – you know we’re out in EVERY arena) will keep posting here. You idiot Suckdic fans keep asking for it.
    Just face it Suckdics, your team is done. 3 Hall of Famers and only 1 title – that’s a f*cking failure if I ever saw one. With 3 hall of famers, the Suckdics should’ve won every year. That just shows how bad of a coach Doc Rivers is. Typical pathetic Boston team. HAHAHAHAHA!

    Yeah. And Parish beat on his wife, too. Just because you’re a great player doesn’t make you a nice person/non-sexist.

    3 hall of famers and 1 title is a failure? um they havent even finished 3 full seasons playing together yet, and last season were playing with only 2 “hall of famers” in the playoffs
    But ok bud, its not exactly like we had all 3 of them for their entire careers or in their prime

    Jealous about what? does this news about the 80s lakers make u feel special or something? lol who gives a shit, doesnt effect any of us one way or another

  • Venus

    Please stop being stupid. Every team has fans in every arena. Well every team except the Clippers. But how did the 2004 Lakers fare again? At least our hall of famers when they went into the playoffs healthy gave a historical bitch slap to their finals opponent.
    And enough with the juvenile nicknames. This is one of the best Celtics blogs but the mindless trolling around here makes intelligent discourse unnecessarily difficult.

    ” This is one of the best Celtics blogs but the mindless trolling around here makes intelligent discourse unnecessarily difficult.”
    I agree.
    A little more finesse man, don’t come out of the gate like a frat boy on pledge night.

    “But ok bud, its not exactly like we had all 3 of them for their entire careers or in their prime”
    Excuses – I wouldn’t expect anything less from a Boston fan.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f6a54c2970c ToTheRuins

    Actually its pretty much true
    the 3 of them havent played 3 full seasons together, and are in the twilight of there careers, somehow you think 1 title in 2 1/2 seasons is bad.
    doesnt make much sense
