  • While Tim Hardaway may be an idiot for so bluntly making his opinion known, he IS entitled to his opinion. (As Wesley Snipes said in “Demolition Man”: You can’t take away somebody’s right to be an asshole.) And while George Takei’s response is humorous, I wish it had been a serious response. While I don’t think the human race will EVER be without bigotry of some kind, we can’t keep poking fun at bigotry to rid ourselves of it.

  • i think there were enough serious responses to what a guy whom i have idolized since he played for the warriors said in his stupidity. it doesn’t detract from him as a ball player, just as a man.

    also, i think george made a point by making equally ridiculous statements right back at timmy hardaway. it was a way of fighting back–by showing that hardaway’s words couldn’t hurt someone who didn’t put any value on them.

  • i have new found respect for george. that’s hilarious!
