Magic Reconciles with Isiah, Tweets That He's 'Glad We Can Be Friends Again'

It’s just a tweet, a silly characterization of a person’s mood in 140 characters or less, and possibly something we shouldn’t spend more than three seconds considering before moving on to more weightier matters. Like dunks or draft picks in June, I suppose. Ah, forget that. This is Magic Johnson, possibly the finest point guard to ever play the game of basketball, discussing the possible reconciliation of what was one of the NBA’s great friendships. One between Magic and Isiah Thomas – the player that ran the same position as him, at nearly a foot shorter, working for Magic’s home-state team. Longtime friends, eventual friendly rivals, but also 21-year combatants in the wake of rumored insensitive reactions by Thomas in the wake of Magic’s 1991 HIV diagnosis.
