Amare Stoudemire Hates Gays in Locker Rooms

Amare Stoudemire
Nobody wants to admit this publicly to avoid any controversy, but it is obvious that nobody wants gays inside sports locker rooms. Not in the PBA. Not in the NBA. It is even more so in Israel.

Former NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire has publicly acknowledge what was in everyone's mind all this time. He said he would avoid a teammate if he found out he was gay.

The ex- New York Knicks forward, who joined Hapoel Jerusalem Basketball Club in 2016, told Israeli news site Walla Sport, that he would be uncomfortable around a homosexual teammate.

The news site interviewed multiple Israeli basketball players on their thoughts on having a gay player on their team.

"I'm going to shower across the street, make sure my change of clothes are around the corner," Stoudemire said.

"And I'm going to drive ... take a different route to the gym," he added.

When the reporter asked the 34-year-old if his comments were in jest, Stoudemire said: "I mean, there's always a truth within a joke."

Other players interviewed said a homosexual teammate bother them as well. If gays wants to play sports, then they should create a league for their own kind and not join games where straight players do their thing.
