It seems that John Amaechi's coming out has brought out the worst in retired Miami Heat player Tim Hardaway. In a recent radio interview when Tim was asked how he would deal with an openly gay player he had this to say, "First of all I wouldn't want them on my team. And second of all, if he was on my team, you know, I would really distance myself from him because, uh, 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, and it's just a whole lot of other things and I wouldn't even be a part of that."

Later in the interview Hardaway goes even further to say that if an openly gay player was on his team he should be traded even if his skills on the court were an asset to the team. I'm completely outraged that he would have the audacity as a Black man who comes from a history of oppression to spew this kind of hate towards another minority group.

There is no doubt that this is how he feels about same gender loving people. He did not hold back and there will be no amount of rehab to fix the damage that has been done as a result of his actions.

When did it become okay to display your hatred towards gays or any other group in a national setting? Hardaway should be stripped immediately of any endorsement deals or public appearances. Is this the kind of person the NBA wants to represent their league?

Hardaway may not want to deal with the fact that gay players exist in professional sports, but the truth is we do and either both sides will learn to co-exist or players like Hardaway can mouth off and end up looking like the true "faggot" in the end!

I understand the position of the gay community about the acceptance of gays in the league. However, Hardaway as a very good and legitimate point.

Most players in the locker room, where not only is a place for strategy and going over play material is a place where you dress and undress. If a gay man is aroused and attracted to the same sex, what guarantee his focus the game and the league and not on the body parts of his teammates? This represents a conflict of interest. There is no guarantee a gay player will be able to master his/her attractions and arousals when around their own gender.

The previous assertion is one of the most inept remarks I have ever heard. You are out of your mind. You are as scholarly as Tim Hardaway. That speaks volumes. Damn!!!

Captain you are without a doubt the craziest fool i have ever heard.....so if thats the case then there should be no gay doctors in this country...god forbid an accident victim comes into an emergency room where the doctor or nurses are gay and cant control themselves because they see body parts and start masterbating while the victim bleeds to death or better yet how about a lesbian nurse who works in the delivery room gets so aroused at the sight of the woman giving birth breasts that she forgets to clip and clamp the umbilical cord....gimme a break you asswipe..it doesnt work like that you moron.

Well, I had much more to say on my blog. This shouldn't be an issue if America would stand up and denounce the acceptance of homosexuality.
