and i don’t like retired point guards

“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.”

Tim Hardaway, a former NBA point guard, has a reaction to a former NBA player John Amaechi coming out recently and it’s obviously not a very nice one.

”First of all I wouldn’t want him 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 that 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. But stuff like that is going on and there’s a lot of other people I hear that are like that and still in the closet and don’t want to come out of the closet, but you know I just leave that alone.”

He’s just so smart and wise, that Tim Hardaway fella. Clearly once someone announces that they’re gay they automatically turn into a horrible basketball player. I wouldn’t be surprised if John Amaechi could even dribble a basketball now that he’s out.

And obviously if a guy in the locker room is gay, he’s GOT to be checking out Tim Hardaway and everyone else, because that’s what those gays do!

The transcript that’s posted on the Miami Herald’s website makes me want to kick Hardaway in the nuts a few times. And for the record, I don’t like point guards that used to wear the #10 for the Golden State Warriors and couldn’t really do shit for his team after Mitch Richmond left the squad.

Oh, Timmy. I actually used to really like you back in the day, but it’s hard for me to even entertain the thought of liking someone that’s a narrow-minded asshole like yourself.

    Wow, I thought that first part you quoted was you paraphrasing what he actually said. But he actually said that! What a dickhead.

    He said so much stupid shit, I don’t even know where to start commenting.

  2. How Much Does Tim Hardaway’s $.02 Cost?

    “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 Un…
