40NBAA Magic Night

Date / Feb 9, 1992

Location / Orlando Arena | Orlando, Fla.

Moment / Just months after announcing that he was HIV positive and retiring from professional basketball, Magic Johnson returned to the hardwood to play in the 1992 NBA All-Star Game. Voted in by the fans, Magic was named the game's MVP.

Impact / Magic's announcement brought HIV and AIDS into the national conversation, with many players expressing concern that he could spread the disease on the court. Magic would go on to play in the 1992 Olympics but fear about his disease curtailed a comeback plan for the '92-93 NBA season.
