Warriors fall to Pacers

Bryant has a concussion
Kobe Bryant has a concussion in addition to the broken nose he sustained in the All-Star Game.
The Los Angeles Lakers say Bryant saw a neurologist on Tuesday and he diagnosed the concussion. The all-star guard will see Vern Williams again on Wednesday, and his status for that night's home game against Minnesota is day-to-day.
Bryant was injured during Sunday night's game in Orlando, Fla. He was knocked to the floor by Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, who said that he has apologized to Bryant for breaking his nose.
It wasn't Magic Johnson's idea to participate in a documentary about his announcement that he had "attained" HIV in 1991. He hadn't thought about it. But ESPN had.
He has lived for more than 20 years with the virus. Because of the cocktail of drugs that replaced AZT, his immune system is indistinguishable from a normal person's, his doctor says. Science caught up to the public optimism that made Johnson sound daft or in deep denial on the day of his announcement.
"I'm going to go on and I'm going to beat it," he said.
Johnson had been approached by others wanting to make a documentary to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the announcement. But he liked some of the "30 for 30" films and agreed to go with ESPN, for whom he is an NBA analyst. The result is The Announcement, a documentary that will make its debut on March 11 from 9 to 10:30 p.m. Eastern.
