A Little Bit Of Magic

At only 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and 20 inches in height, he isn't NBA material yet. But Earvin Johnson III, born last week in Los Angeles to Cookie and Magic Johnson, has already notched a major victory. He tested negative for the AIDS virus which forced his father's retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers last November. Earlier, Cookie had tested negative as well, and her doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center were confident that the child was not infected. The couple "brought a little magic into the world today," Johnson's agent said in a statement. "The father is said to be looking forward to many late-night feedings and endless diaper changes." No word yet on whether Johnson, who also has an 11-year-old son, will take Baby Magic to the Summer Olympics in Barcelona next month.
