Ankle Breaker

posted by on March 19 at 12:22 PM

Former NBA point guard known for his devasting crossover dribble, Tim Hardaway, tries to break some ankles in the press:

“I’m looking for a second chance and trying to clean up my image,” he said. “I haven’t been in trouble with drugs or guns. I’m an upstanding citizen. This is a big bump I have to overcome. I’m going to deal with it like a champ. I’ve got to make sure people know I don’t hate gay people.”

Uhhhhh... Didn't he say he hates gay people? So, he is either a liar or has some serious mental problems he needs to overcome.

This is a GIANT bump he has to overcome. Making disparaging remarks about gay people is infinitely worse than being in trouble with drugs or guns.

Yeah, he also states the biggest problem with this whole thing has been the affect it's had on his endorsement deals.

If you want to make sure people know you don't hate gay people maybe you could start by NOT saying things like, "yeah, I hate gay people, let it be known..."

It's known buddy. We're not exactly big fans of yours either.

Perhaps he'd have an easier time if he WAS on drugs. He could just follow the lead of so many other recent fuck-ups, check in to rehab, and cure himself of his drug/alcohol induced hate.

Maybe girls are mad at him now and he's not getting as much as he used to. And a lot of girls like gays, and what he sayed pissed them off just as much, and he's realizes to get his 'image' back, exspecially amongst many gay supporters of his team(who have lots of money and girlfriends) and most of the big money making players know , you don't fucking piss off gay people or you'll never get laid again. Look at Hollywood for example. Many actors go down in flames in their careers, a lot quicker if they rip on gays, than if they ripped on black people. So my assumption is he needs to make amends because of his sexual preference situation, if you want to keep it real and shit what he really feels. In other words he's getting turned down a lot in public from women, not just endorsements and money and all that. And thats what really bugs him about all this.

Yeah, said you hate gays.

"I hate gay people" != "I don't hate gay people"

Quote #2: Making disparaging remarks about gay people is infinitely worse than being in trouble with drugs or guns.

Almost too asinine to respond to.
