Was the positive HIV diagnosis of NBA superstar Magic Johnson a ploy to divert attention from more widespread criminal issues plaguing the National Basketball Association and its paid players?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, it wasn't.

    The positive HIV diagnosis of Magic Johnson was not a conspiratorial organizing to take attention off of the crime problems in the NBA, these two things merely occurred at the same time. To suggest that a man is faking an illness so as to take the heat off of other players is ridiculous.

  • The NBA's issues were not at stake there.

    The positive HIV diagnosis of Magic Johnson had absolutely nothing to do with any criminal issues that might have been "plaguing" the National Basketball Association at the time. What it did do, however, was further humanize the plight of people with HIV and AIDS to a nation that still thought of it as a gays only disease.

  • He really has it

    No, this diagnosis of Magic Johnson was not just a ploy, it is a true diagnosis, and a very serious illness for this player to catch. The reason that this superstar can possibly handle the disease better is his excellent physical condition, and his extreme wealth that he can pay for treatment.

  • That's A Stupid Idea

    I do not believe the positive diagnosis of NBA superstar Magic Johnson was not involved with a ploy to divert attention from widespread criminal issues plaguing the National Basketball Association and its paid players. I believe it is ridiculous to assume a persons medical problems would somehow cover up an organizations problems.

  • He didn't make it up.

    No, the positive HIV diagnosis of Magic Johnson was not a ploy to divert critical attention from more widespread criminal issues, because there are many worse criminal problems in the NBA today than there were back in Magic Johnson's day. Even though things are worse now, the NBA is not diagnosing other players with HIV.
