    How does that contradict my statement in any way? Oh yeah, it doesn't.


    he may be a homophobic, but that doesn't make everything he says about the guy homophobic.
    My argument is that his homophobia is the impetus for his criticisms. this is demonstrated by: his prior history. His admitted hatred of the specific sport being discussed. His choice to engage in a thread about basketball in the way that he has.

    I suggest looking up the genetic fallacy
    Why do you have the delusional belief that this is related to the genetic fallacy? His choice to engage in the thread in the manner he has engaged in it is directly due to his beliefs about homosexuality. He has admitted that his actions and choices have nothing to do with an interest in basketball , a sport he has professed to loathe. (which eliminates concern about the effects this announcement will have on his BASKETBALL career from consideration) What other alternative reasoning can you think of that caused him to engage in the thread in the fashion that he has? The alternative you provided, speculation about this career, is of no concern to a person who loathes basketball. So the only remaining conclusion is.... I'll let you mull that one over.

    Narrowing down the possibilities to the only logical conclusion is not the genetic fallacy.

    No I got it, believe me. I got that you folks are so wrapped up in your rush to celebrate this turd, that you ignore the real implications of his actions.

    So then you of all people should be able to provide a good reason besides homophobia for choosing to criticize his career in this context.

    But go on with your bad empathizing self by making damned sure that more people end up like her. It's sure to work.
    That reminds me of the poor soul that stayed with his wife for thirty years and out of the blue decided he was gay. Yeah, I was so oppressed I had to marry this woman and lie to her for thirty years. Right...

    That excuses everything...

    Unless he's retired or clearly not going to play again, he's active. With the Wizards, he wouldn't be "active" come playoff time anyway.

    He's the only guy to ever break up with a girl? Huh? I support that he became honest about his sexual orientation period. End of story.

    BS! He already knew who he was. Probably for a very long time. Coming out isn't about being honest with yourself, it's about being honest with the one's around you.
