just came to my mind. are there any gay or bi players in the NBA? i know lebron made the video admitting he was gay, but is he the only one?

EDIT: THE LEBRON VIDEO WAS A JOKE OBVIOUSLY. He has a kid, he isn't gay. I was referring to this.

That would be a tragedy and most fans(including me) and players would try to get the player out of the NBA, there's no place for that at all.

Why is there no place for being gay? It's not like they chose to be gay.

Oh yeah? Go ahead, be gay. Try it. Try defying natural instincts and just become gay.

You can't. There examples of animals exhibiting gay behavior. It isn't something controllable, it is some sort of defect.

no they really don't. even though its not scientifically proven, its kinda obvious that people are born gay. it starts when they're little. i have a gay family member and my family said its been pretty obvious since he was like 5.

I've known several gay and lesbian people, and they do not choose to be gay. Why would someone choose a lifestyle that is not only taboo, but scorned and ridiculed. They are openly hated, for no other reason than their sexual orientation. It's sad, and your comments have no place in reality. If you think people can not be born gay, then wow. Go get educated.

Who gives a **** if someones gay or not? thats just so ignorant. First off these are NBA players. They dont effect you at all, Your not gonna go chill with them, Your watching them on tv. If you cant watch someone on tv for 2 hours because they are gay then you have real issues. Second off who gives a damn what people do in they're private lives? Its not yours or my business and it doesnt effect any of us so why the **** does it matter?

Unbelievable ignorance in here right now. People don't just choose to be gay or straight, and taking a gay man to a strip club won't just magically cure their natural preference. And to say that there is no place in the NBA for gay people is ridiculous. They have just as much a right as anyone else to play in the NBA if they have the desire and the talent. Statistics show that there are undoubtedly gay men in the NBA, and probably more than we think.

Not entire true. Physiologically sometimes a baby's repructive organs aren't entirely formed at birth. Since they're composed of the same tissue the parents and Doctors are left to determine what sex should they be. Sometimes they guess wrong. Thats when people grow up and you here stuff like "Im a man in a womans body" or whatever. But that more of a transgender issue as opposed to a homosexual one.

As far as homosexuality goes research has shown a great deal of them (that admitted it) encountered some form of sexual abuse during childhood. When you have a traumatic experience that young it tends to alter your view towards sexuality and intimacy....

That would be a tragedy and most fans(including me) and players would try to get the player out of the NBA, there's no place for that at all.

When Magic Johnson tested HIV positive a lot of fans and some players, including some of the most ignorant and prejudice of the bunch (Karl Malone) were quick to say they didn't want him on the court, that they "didn't feel comfortable" having him remain in the league. To date the sentiment that Malone and others involved in the league shared represents one of the great-low points in league history. It represents intolerance and blatant ignorance; surely the league and people involved have grown more tolerant and have learned from the mistakes of the past.

Of corse there are gay or bi-sexual players. They just stay in the closet because the majority of sports fans think like the poster above. It's a business and they don't want to upset the customer.

You guys have obviously never heard of Little Richard.

The physical act is a choice, the attraction and feeling towards someone is not a choice. And who are you to say the physical act is wrong? Are you referring to the Bible for your justification? There are more verses in the Bible condoning slavery than their are passages denouncing homosexuality.

Seriously, what is the reason for this post?
To question the sexuality of a person to publicly ridicule him?
If an NBA player is gay, either by him, be happy and make your life, everyone does with their life what they want, if this good or bad, those are things political and religious, not I think in a forum NBA should speak of that.

Yeah Dolphin guy. While we are at it, let's ban African Americans too. Gays must choose to be gay cause they love getting ridiculed constantly by ignorant unintelligent people like you. I've only met a few gays, but I've never had a problem with any of them, especially due to their sexual preference. It amazes me that there is still this P.O.S. thinking in this country.
