    I'm still skeptical that the reaction to Collins wasn't planned ahead of time, given that the NBA was the last place I'd expect an athlete to come out. Well, other than the NFL, which epitomizes the neanderthal jock mentality. The thing is though it's so easy to say anything negative on twitter, and Hibbert just perfectly demonstrated how they don't always fall in line. Calling the media 'mother ****ers' at a press conference is like, the oldest no-no in the book. So i don't know. Either way, some of the comments here are a ****ing disgrace compared to what Hibbert said.

    I wonder what Rudy Gay thought of the whole episode?

    He didn't say anything about the NBA. He simply made a partisan comment.

    This is an overreaction IMO. How is it okay for Jason Collins to proclaim his sexuality but not okay for Roy Hibbert to say what he said? The sexual preference of public figures is something that homosexuals use constantly to further their cause. When the other side says something, I don't believe it to be proper for the gay community and/or gay supporters to attempt to shame them or muzzle them. Simple as that.

    I agree.

    Political correctness is epic bull****.

    Call someone a fat retard all you want but god forbid you call them a fag, nigger or whatever...

    It makes no sense.

    I would never apologize.

    In what universe should minorities (sexual/racial/religious etc) be immune from being insulted? In what universe should they be treated better than anyone else? What makes them so Goddamn special?

    Boston had a power forward named Sydney Wicks Wicks was 6-9 a foot taller then Murphy

    in one game Murphy was going into score and wicks hammered him. Murphy made some comment that Wicks was a "fag" (there was a rumor in the league Wicks was gay). Wicks took a swing at Murphy who jumped up-grabbed Wicks' fro and proceeded to beat the living crap out of the foot taller guy
    Sometimes these things can best be handled personally, the way Calvin Murphy. As it is we have straight people telling us how to behave around Gays, White people telling us how to behave around Blacks, and so on.

    The comedian Louis CK summed up the attitude of White Men pretty well, and that should be the response by everyone. The Calvin Murphy style is another excellent option. We should all calm down and allow the words to become meaningless. To me saying "The N word" is just as stupid, or more so, than saying 'nigger'.

    As a private employer, the NBA has the right to set certain behavior standards for those that are employed by its franchises. If in my job, I called someone a derisive term, I'd likely be disciplined. As I should be.

    If you don't like the NBA's regulation of player behavior, don't play pro basketball and don't purchase their product.

    I can't help but wonder what would have happened if he replied to the media with "no delusional Christian, would that be a fine as well?

    Not likely, but equally offensive. If the NBA or any organization is to have a none offensive policy, it better damn well be able to show consistency in enforcing it, or I smell lawsuits abound.
