One of the zoomed-in videos showed that each chair contained a white human-form signpost. The second video was a quick survey of the field where players stood in preparation for the game. Cookie captioned her post:

Magic's post was similar to his wife's. Just like Cookie's post, Magic shared a snapshot of him and Cookie posing for a couple-time photo while the empty arena was their backdrop. He wrote in his caption that it felt "strange" not to have the 52,000 Dodger fans in the stadium showing their unwavering support.

Page Six reports that the NBA alum and his longtime spouse made headlines after they had a three-day joint party for their birthday last year. With a destination bash set in St. Tropez, Cookie and her husband had a fun-filled and lavish celebration.

According to Daily Mail, the couple was all chummy with each other during one of their romantic trips. This time, it was a trip to France and the lovebirds were photographed standing in awe of each other.

Essence shared the moment when Magic opened up about his marriage and the impact in his life. Fans would reckon that Magic is one of the well-decorated basketball players of all time. But for him, his best decision was marrying Cookie.

During their 28th anniversary, Magic declared this fact in a heartfelt Instagram post while sharing throwback photos from his proposal and their wedding.
