The couple has been together for more than two decades and is still going strong. For the legendary NBA retiree, marrying Cookie was one of the best decisions he ever made.

When they celebrated their 28th-anniversary last year in September, the couple took their fans down memory lane with a montage of pictures that captured some of the adorable moments they shared over the years.

Their greatest challenge came not long after their marriage when Magic was diagnosed with HIV.

Their greatest challenge came not long after their marriage when Magic was diagnosed with HIV. At the time, Cookie had been pregnant with their son, EJ, and had been terrified her husband would die and she and her son would get infected.

Cookie would later detail how the diagnosis changed their lives forever in a book titled, "Believing in Magic." The book features the tale behind her marriage, losing their way, and finally finding a way they never imagined
