Tim Hardaway Apparently Not a Fan of Gays

Former NBA star Tim Hardaway makes it known that he "hates gays".

"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known," Hardaway said. "I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States."


"And second of all, if he was on my team, I would, you know, really distance myself from him because, uh, I don't think that's right. And you know I don't think he should be in the locker room while we're in the locker room. I wouldn't even be a part of that," he said.

This is in response to former NBA player John Amechi revelation that he's gay. At least we know where he stands. This will probably lead to Hardaway not being hired for a coaching position that he was seeking next year.
