Tim Hardaway has attempted to make things right after his homophobic comments in 2007. (AP) Former Golden State and Warriors and Miami Heat point guard Tim Hardaway is best known for three things — his incredible crossover dribble, his status as a member of Run-TMC, and his homophobic remarks after ex-NBA center John Amaechi came out as gay in 2007. Hardaway received major criticism in the wake of those comments (plus a minor punishment from the league), and the impact has continued to be felt in the years since. The controversy occupies a prominent place on his Wikipedia page and remains associated with him well into retirement.
