Feb 15 - NBA dumps 5 time All-star after gay comments, bar from all NBA Events
 

 
The NBA have removed Tim Hardaway from all league related appearances, after the five-time All-Star made derogatory comments about gays.

The former Miami Heat guard, had been part of the NBA's festivities ahead of Sunday's All-Star game in Las Vegas, but an interview he conducted with a Miami radio station has caused outrage in America.

Hardaway was asked how he would react to having a gay team-mate, in response to the recent news that former NBA centre John Amaechi has come out as being gay.

"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people," was Hardaway's response.

"I'm homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States."

"First of all, I wouldn't want [a gay man] on my team, and second of all, if he was on my team, I would really distance myself from him because I don't think that is right. I don't think he should be in the locker room while we are in the locker room.

"If you have 12 other ballplayers in your locker room who are upset and can't concentrate and are always worried about him in the locker room or on the court or whatever, it's going to be hard for your team-mates to win and accept him as a team-mate."

After the tirade, NBA commissioner David Stern confirmed that they would no longer be using Hardaway to promote the game on-behalf of the a.ssociation.

“It is inappropriate for him to be representing us given the disparity between his views and ours," Stern said in a statement to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Hardaway has since apologised for his comments.

“I regret it, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said I hate gay people or anything like that, that was my mistake," he told a local TV station in Miami.

Meanwhile, Amaechi, whose coming out led to Hardaway being quizzed on the issue, says the comments may actually lead to a more educated debate on the subject.

“Finally, someone who is honest”, he said.

“It is ridiculous, absurd, petty, bigoted, and shows a lack of empathy that is gargantuan and unfathomable, but it is honest, and it illustrates the problem better than any of the fuzzy language other people have used so far.”

Good.

Like, I'm not a fan of gays or whatever, but Hardaway is a fu*king IDIOT. Especially after what happened to Isaiah Washington.

Honestly he has a right to an opinion. Everybody doesn't have to accept everything. That's what freedom of speech is. And no one can really say anything otherwise. I mean Timmy may view gay s3x like animal s3x. He may find it unacceptable.

It's cool for the NBA to distance itself from him but if they think more players don't feel like him than feel the other way they're stupid. Also if the NBA is so for gay pride why don't they embrace the large gay WNBA population? PR is a bi*ch. When it's smart to denounce someone for speaking out against gays they ban him. But when it comes time to embrace gays in a sport thats run over with them the WNBA shys far far away from that because it goes against their "family values" theme and they think young girls might not watch it as much.

The NBA like every other capitalistic business is a damn hypocrite when PR and money is involved.

Yeah but he representin the whole NBA somewhat so he needs to watch how he phrases sh*t... U know they dont like blatant HATE... and gay is so mainstream these days is it really that big a deal? in Most new locker rooms ive been in there is either a curtain or something --separate showers.. c'mon u that bent outta shape cuz someones MIGHT be lookin at you ? Then Shower at home or in a separate bathing quarters..... I think he has some underlyingissues actually...
