In the wake of the Kobe Bryant and Joakim Noah gay slur incidents in which both men used anti-gay slurs, many people are saying that the NBA has officially become the most homophobic sports league in the country.
The backlash began a few weeks ago when Kobe Bryant used a slur against a referee. GLAAD (Gays & Lesbians Alliance Against Defamation) went right after him and the NBA responded by saying they were against such talk. Shortly thereafter, Joakim Noah mentioned the same slur to a fan at a game in Miami. The organization believes that no one has really learned anything and much still needs to be done.
According to a poll done on Bleacher Report, 65 percent of people say that the NBA does not have a problem with homophobia, while 35 percent feel it does. Not a landslide victory there, but the question still remains. If there is homophobia, what will it take to get it fixed?
