He should have kept his views private.


Especially when he is in the public eye you can't have views or you will lose sponsorships and your worth for a business.



He has the right views and he cares about his integrity more than the money though.

This is bullsh*t. These companies let gay's run them. They make them push aside their morals and afraid to speak out for some fear of a gay boycott. What a disaster that would be lol...man the love of money!

Wow at the amount of backwards a.ss, caveman esque thought processes in this topic. ALOT of you need to grow the fu*k up. You're all for freedom of speech but only when its not something that offends you. sh*t doesn't work that way.

All this freedom of speech stuff people are talking about is stupid, freedom of speech doesn't mean you can say whatever you want with no consequences, no one is trying to question his right to freedom of speech, the NBA has no authority to do that, but they're a business and they do have the right to chose who represents them, so he's just paying the consequences for what he chose to say.

since when is being gay ight? wtf is wrong with u idoits? god made men and women to reproduce all this gay sh*t is getting ridiculous. if u accept gays u might as well accept child molesters and pedofiles. but back to tim. if they didn't want to hear what a man had to say they shouldn't have never asked.

then what exactly does FREEDOM OF SPEECH mean then? if i can't say wtf i want where's the freedom? of coarse a soft son of a bi*ch will get offended by things people say, but there ain't sh*t you can about it except strip a man of his rights, and at the end of the day he gets fu*ked for trying to voice his opinion. amechi said he was glad that he was honest. the only one's offended is f*g lovers.

You do have the right to say what you want (there are limits, like yelling fire or stuff like that, which endangers people), no one is stripping Tim Hardaway of his rights, no one is saying he's not allowed to say he hates gay people. There are consequences to what you say though, because the NBA has rights also, to decide who they want to respresent them. You act like he's being arrested for saying it, that would be stripping someone of their right to free speech, and in many places people do get arrested, a.ssaulted and k!lled over what they say, don't trivialize that and act like a business decision, which the NBA is well within its rights to make, is stripping him of his freedom of speech, it's not.

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.
Yo dude got played. Whoever interviewed him probably knew his stand against Gays and got him on the radio just to call him out. Especially being from the south and dude probably is a every Sunday church going guy. Those kind of people do not put up with gays. But at the same time, he should of phrased his words a lot better. The one word that you really can't use is hate. Hate is a very very powerful word and he used it at the wrong time. Sorry kid but you fu*ked UP!! You really fu*ked Up!!! Plus you just lost a phat a.ss check that was coming your way. Being Black and put into a whole is nearly impossible to rise out of.

with Freedom of Speech u can say watever u want. but u also have consequences for talkin stupid, thats what he did and he's payin for it point blank. as a business man youd be stupid to not take David Stern's stance. gay ppl watch sports too and u hav no idea how many of them make up the nba audience so Stern supporting that woulda been bad for business, whether u agree wit it or not, whether he agrees with it or not thats the stance he had to take.

When you're a public figure, like an actor, music artist, political figure, you are bound by a whole separate set of regulations. Slander and Lible <-sp? are much harder to prove and whatever you say, is overly criticized.

The whole thing is so big because 1)He's a hall of famer 2) He made his comments on national radio 3) He just happened represent the NBA in the upcoming all star weekend.

We all know this PR sh*t is way out of control. But knowing that, you gotta act accordingly.
