Magic Johnson: Exceptional Person

Magic Johnson, at 6-foot 9, was the tallest point guard in the National Basketball Association (NBA). His talents elicited wonder and admiration from even the most casual basketball fan. He accomplished everything a player could dream of during his 12 year NBA career.

On November 7, 1991, Johnson retired from professional basketball because a blood test had shown that he was infected with HIV. He then dedicated his life to educating people -- especially youngsters -- about HIV and AIDS prevention. He established the Magic Johnson Foundation to raise money to fund HIV and AIDS organizations.
