I guess they couldn't find Tommy Morrison or Magic Johnson to comment on the supposed myth.

Come on, tinkleDrinker. You're better than these inane one sentence replies. I'm not one to antagonize, but it's posts like yours that have completely ruined this board.

perhaps i should have wrote two sentences? seriously i have heard that magic is clean (HIV free), i don't know if it is true, but i was just adding... you know. i thought the article was interesting, but it did not have much content - not much that i could reply too at least. based on the information that was provided i could niether support or discredit the statements. i mean it was pretty vague, almost unitelligable.

as to your other point about my posts... For the amount of time i have been posting here (approx 2.5 years) i have posted very little and when i did post i had something to say. sure, every now and again my posts were frivolous, but wtf... that does not make me any different than anyone else around here.

but in the interest of starting a real discussion about the article what did you think? new jack!

So does this mean that the treatment that Magic he was undergoing for HIV cured him or was mis-diagnosed from the get-go?

Can you post the source where you found out he was clean?

i heard it from my bro... usually a pretty good source - i would have to inquire where he heard (or read it). anyway, our thoughts about the sitituation were the same, probably an error in the original test. anyway that is all i can really say, unless my brother weighs in w/ the source.

i'll ask him tonight

I also heard that Magic Johnson didn't have AIDS anymore... could just be a rumor though.

Well this may seem dumb but he Magic never had AIDS to begin with he had HIV, the virus that causes AIDS later on. If he no longer has HIV I wonder why it hasn't made it to the news yet. This seems like a medical breakthrough.

Yes, Magic never had AIDS, thats right dallasboy, and he's not cured.

http://www.natap.org/2002/Nov/112502_2.htm

"Michelle Lopez, a community activist in NYC, asked him during the extensive question and answer period to address the misconception people have that Magic was "cured". He carefully explained that he is not cured, that HIV is not curable today, and that probably he would be on medication for HIV for the rest of his life."

Just to clarify, though I didn't say much.

Alright, well I guess I missed the original news story because that link changes every day.

But there definitely was an announcement made that Magic Johnson has no trace of the HIV virus anymore. It was in the news. This happened a few years ago, and then nothing else came of it.

This was a topic of discussion in the tour van.

There was no TRACE of the HIV virus in his blood. It is all so suspicious, especially the lack of follow up to that story.
