Magic Johnson’s NBA Return Only Happened After A Deal With His Wife — ‘I Bribed Her. I Gave Her A Million Dollars’
“My wife told me, ‘That’s it, one (season) and get out.’ Or she’ll leave me. Cookie always told me I was coming back: ‘No way you’re working out three times a day, and you’re not coming back, you can’t tell me.’ I said you haven’t given me your OK yet. So, I bribed her. I gave her a million dollars,” Johnson said of the situation.
