Hardaway had to know that there would be a backlash. If you are in the limelight you have to be careful what you say. As long as he is employed by/associated with the NBA (a private organization, with its own rules), he has to represent the League in a positive manner. The NBA, or any high-profile organization for that matter, is going to protect themselves/image. The NBA doesn't want to be seen as an organization that tolerates any type of hate or dicrimination. We live in a very sensitive society, and homos3xuality is one of the most sensitive issues today. While he has the right to voice his opinion, he should have thought about the consequences of what he was saying. It amazes me when celebrities make statements like Hardaway's, don't they have PR people to advise them.

And yet another player fined for speaking his mind. Stern is on a roll. Give that four eyed out of touch with reality, bi*ch some props for turning the NBA into sunday school. Just because one guy happens to have a negative opinion about gays doesn't mean people are going to think that reflects the entire NBA's opinion. And if anybody does, then they're an idiot. Because it's clear as day what David Stern thinks about gays...considering the fact that he's a fu*kin c*ck sucker.

And as a business the NBA has the right to distance itself from percieved intolerence and or ignorance. Its about the bottom line. The NBA is about making money... If you owned a car dealership or electronics store would you want one of your sales people making intolerant or bigoted statements in public? I don't give a sh*t if a dude likes sucking c*ck or eating pus*y if he buys my product and puts money in my pocket.

The NBA isn't saying he didn't have the right to say it, of course he had the right, but if was to take part in NBA related appearances, he'd be respresenting the league, and they obviously don't want to be represented by a hateful biggot, they don't want his comments to do any more damage than they already have.

If the NBA is so damn worried about how they present themselves and being viewed as tolerable, how about presenting themselves as a company who is tolerable of people who have different opinions? The only business they are gonna lose out of this is from idiots. Only an idiot would think one mans opinion reflects a thousand others is the same company. But unfortunitely, they did make the right move....because theres a whole lot of idiots out there.

All the people saying "Haha, he's keeping it real" and whatever -- what if he had said "I hate zzzzzzs"? I wonder if everyone would be still think he's "keeping it real".

Idiots.
