Charles Barkley: This was a big week for gays in sports. The Phoenix Suns’ President came out of the closet, as did former Villanova forward Will Sheridan. Mouthy Charles Barkley weighed in on the subject of gay athletes: “Every player has played with gay guys. It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say: ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play.” Also weighing in on this topic: True Hoop’s Kevin Arnovitz.
This is truly remarkable.
