They had been beefing since Magic said some negative things he felt about Isiah in a tell-all book. Magic said he was upset that Isiah had questioned his sexuality after he announced he had HIV. Isiah was upset that Magic never said anything to his face.
The two close friends after that weren’t so close anymore.
Magic went on Twitter today to say that is in the past and they will be able to play in the backyard together again.
I had a great private convo with @Iamisiahthomas. Glad we can be friends again.
