When you hear Tim Hardaway say: You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay

When you hear Tim Hardaway say:

You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I'm homophobic, I don't like it, it shouldn't be in the world or in the United States."

"I'm sorry," doesn't seem to cut it. I know LeBron James is a kid, but he didn't help himself with this one:

BLITZER: LeBron James said this, he said: "If you're teammates, you have to be trustworthy, and if you're gay and you're not admitting that you are, then you are not trusting." He makes a point.

Is Wolf on drugs? How does Lebron make a point?

STERN: I don't think he makes a point. I mean, I think he's trying to be helpful in the debate, but if a person feels threatened by society and by the kinds of publicity that is engendered -- here we are, in THE SITUATION ROOM, talking about the subject -- obviously you could understand somebody not wishing to come out.

BLITZER: But is this the situation like gays in the military, within close quarters -- the locker rooms in the NBA, these guys are all together. Is that an issue that it's worrisome because of this -- all of a sudden it's come up because of Tim Hardaway?

Wolf, I just can't take it anymore....
