As part of a collaboration with ESPN Films, Bill Simmons sat down with Magic Johnson for a two-part podcast that aired as a special program after The Announcement, a documentary that chronicled Johnson’s life and career after the disclosure that he was HIV-positive.
In Part 2 of the podcast, Johnson discusses the discovery and revelation of his diagnosis, and his regrets about retiring after testing positive. He also tries to sell Simmons on the Lakers, explains how he almost became a Knick, and reviews his brief stint as a coach.
The Announcement debuted Sunday night on ESPN. You can watch it again on ESPN2 at 8 p.m. EST on Thursday.
