GM or player, I'm just wondering who has a Hardaway moment. As for offending teammates that kind of thinking kept black people out of major leagues. And it's an issue that everyone eventually got over. Open homosexuals are going to be in our major team sports. As the first of them Smart may have a few speed bumps but our society is growing both more tolerant of gays as well as intolerant of homophobia. So long as Smart is good enough for the NFL he's going to get a chance and have a career.
