Her son, Damon Bozeman, 22, was a star guard at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan. He’s now with the Bulleen Boomers in the Australia-State League.

Tamica’s mom, Louise Treadway, and Magic met when they were 13 and 14 years old in his hometown of Lansing, Mich. Tamica was born a year later in 1975.

Magic was 16 when a test proved he was Bozeman’s father, according to published reports. But since then, he’s ignored Bozeman and her children!

“I have come to terms that at the age of 42 you will never accept me,” Bozeman wrote in her letter, obtained by Radar.

“You have 23-year-old twin grandchildren, who you have never met or tried to reach out to. A granddaughter who is almost done with college — and your grandson.” And as for Damon, she wrote: “I just want you to meet him, get to know him. And, if you do, I will be the first to say, ‘Thanks, Dad, you’re the greatest!’”
