Former NBA Star Is Asked About Having Gay Teammates, His Response Was Blunt

Former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire didn’t hold back when asked about if he’d be OK with a gay teammate.

Stoudemire, who currently plays in Israel, was asked by Israeli media about potential gay teammates, and he responded, “I’m going to shower across the street, make sure my change of clothes are around the corner and and I’m going to drive, take a different route to the gym.” (SLIDESHOW: 12 Times Kristine Leahy Looked Absolutely Stunning)

When asked if he was kidding, Stoudemire simply responded, “There’s always a truth within a joke.”


That’s a bold position to take given the hyper-politically correct culture in sports these days, but he clearly doesn’t care.
