February 15, 2007 at 8:13 AM (PT)
Sports WAXY-A (790 THE TICKET)/MIAMI has posted the audio clip of the now-infamous DAN LEBATARD interview with former NBA star TIM HARDAWAY in which HARDAWAY proclaimed, "I hate gay people."
LEBATARD asked a question about HARDAWAY's opinion on gay teammates (referring to former NBA player JOHN AMAECHI's coming-out last week) at the very end of an interview WEDNESDAY, resulting in HARDAWAY's admission that he is "homophobic" and doesn't want "to be around gay people." HARDAWAY, a former GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS and MIAMI HEAT star, issued an apology for the remarks, but has been pulled by the league from making appearances on the NBA's behalf.
