As everyone knows, former Vanderbilt basketball player John Amaechi recently announced that he was gay. The announcement seems to have sparked a big yawn
among most NBA players, but not Tim Hardaway of the Miami Heat. Hardaway launched into a diatribe against gays on a Miami radio show this week which would be laughable if he did not speak for so many other people in the straight world. Among other things, he said other players would "always [be] worried about him in the locker room." Argh!
Amaechi is disappointed that he has received no greater support from others in the game: He says, perhaps with several unintended entendres
, "It's hard to get straight guys to step up." Read about it here
