Default Which NBA players are racist or have been racist in the past?

Just out of curiosity since the game is multi-cultural now.

Off the top of my head:

Jason Williams : http://asianweek.com/2001_03_23/news...msapology.html
Quote:
Williams responded, “Are you gay? Are you a ***?”

An angered Williams then pelted Ching with expletives, at one point defaming him as a “slant-eyed motherf****r.”

Shaq: http://espn.go.com/nba/news/2003/0110/1490645.html

Quote:
"Tell Yao Ming, 'ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-soh.'''

Tim Hardaway: Not racist against a nationality or ethnicity but against life style choicehttp://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2766213

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

Can anyone think of anything else?

Isiah Thomas: http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/Story?id=3619637&page=1

Quote:
A white man calling a black woman '*****,' that is wrong with me. I'm not accepting that. That's a problem for me," Thomas said

Quote:
But when asked if it was wrong for a black man to call black women *****es, Thomas said "not as much" and "I'm sorry to say, I do make a distinction."

Charles Barkley: ?

I cant find anything on Barkley. His wife is white btw.

No agenda. Just curiosity. Not racist, don't care about gays. What's your agenda in asking?

Allen Iverson told my goldfish that he is orange and not really gold. So that really pissed Bubbles off.

What an a-hole. I always thought AI was a jerk but now I'm convinced. I hope Bubbles is ok.

During the 1992 Olympics. He elbowed one of the African team players and said he thought that player would pull a spear on him.
