    Joe Maloof Harshes on Hardaway

    By | 0 Comments | Feb 14, 2019

    In the wake of former NBA player John Amaechi's announcement that he was gay, and the ensuing fallout over "knuckle dragging mouth breather" Tim Hardaway's ridiculous comments in response, Kings co-owner Joe Maloof has become one of Amaechi's strongest supporters, saying the bigotry that Hardaway demonstrated has no place on a team.

    Via Towleroad:

    John Amaechi himself, in a great Q&A in Philadelphia's City Paper notes Maloof's support, and says it is a favorable sign from a front-office perspective that teams would be more open to having gay players on their roster than when he was playing.

    I much prefer hearing Maloof say Hardaway's comments have no place than the status quo of expecting that players like Amaechi have no place. Small steps…
