Exclamation Stuff Magazine: Tracy McGrady claims 5% of NBA players are gay

September 12, 2003 -- THE Orlando Magic's Tracy McGrady claims 5 percent of NBA players are gay. While he doesn't include himself in that group, he's witnessed gay behavior, he tells Stuff magazine. Almost as upsetting to him, team management didn't consult him before signing power forward Juwan Howard. "I didn't have a clue about it, which I think is crazy, because I should know all the moves they make if I'm the key guy for this team. I'm thinking I should have been the first to know," says McGrady.

ha i didnt know tmac took a survey and find it to be 5%

the juwan howard thing is a bit fucked up...


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

T-Mac says 5% but I'd say it was prolly more like 20%. Just ask Penny Hardaway.

erm...who cares?

If they're gay, they're gay. It doesn't have anything to do with their playing ability. My country is so sex-obsessed

who cares anyway? I don't want to know who you are sleeping with, I just wanna watch the game and see you hoop. That's all.

well, 10% of people worldwide are gay/bi/lesbian no? So that is probably a low end estimate.

Also, 20% of people worldwide are alcoholics, but only 10% of those ever seek some sort of help, and only 10% of those have long term (10+ year) success (that is 1% of the original number).

Just thought I'd share that with you guys .

You'll receive no arguments here about the percentage of gay people in the world population. I posted this for the NBA fans who are delusional that there are any gay basketball players. I'm impressed that a star of Tracy McGrady's magnitude can make this kind of risky statement.
