The former Los Angeles Lakers player announced that he was HIV positive in November 1991.

The epic photo was a hit for fans of the Johnson family, who took to the comments section and echoed the Christmas holiday wishes back to the famous crew.

The Johnson family would frequent the news for many reasons, most notably in the past was Magic's HIV status. The former Los Angeles Lakers player announced that he was HIV positive in November 1991.

The news came as a shock to both the star and his wife, Cookie, whom Magic had wed less than two months before the diagnosis. She was also carrying the couple's first child, EJ.

Cookie's love and support for the basketball star never wavered, and the couple recently celebrated 29 years of marriage in September, and in the same year, EJ celebrated his 28th birthday.

The year 2020 had one more milestone for the Johnson family to celebrate. Magic's former team, Los Angeles, won their 17th NBA Championship and gifted him and Cookie with his 11th Championship ring.
