Billy King On Magic's Journey

Billy King was a coach at Illinois State University 20 years ago when Magic Johnson announced that he had AIDS and would have to retire. He spoke with Bloomberg TV this week on the implications of that day, and not just about how Magic made athletes AIDS aware. King also speaks about the value of having the Hall of Famer mentor players about post-NBA possibilities, linking him up with Allen Iverson while Sixer GM and bringing him in to meet with the Nets.
