Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas Make Peace With One Another After 29 Years

 

This is the greatest NBA-related TV-special in history!

The two NBA legends, Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas, used to be best friends. Even though they were on different teams, rivals even, the two never made a secret of their friendship, which at that time was uncommon.

But unfortunately their friendship ended on a bitter note after Isiah Thomas’ Pistons played Magic Johnson’s Lakers in two consecutive NBA Finals. During the 1988 Finals, Thomas and Magic had an altercation that ended their friendship – until now!

 

 

After that day, the two didn’t talk to each other privately ever again. More so, the feud got even more personal. Magic Johnson helped to keep Isiah Thomas off the 1992 Dream Team, after Thomas had spread rumors of Johnson being bi-sexual or gay.

Now, 29 years later, the two reunited in a special on NBA TV last night. They made peace with one another in one of the greatest moments I’ve ever seen on TV. Who’s cutting onions?

 

“Let me apologize to you. If I hurt you. That we haven’t been together.”
