true clown world. ya'll are ridiculous reaching with your "-phobic" narrative for everything that is published on the WWW.
Yes and everything else he said is homophobic. Very much so.
Ah, but calling Durant a p*ssy is just fine. Got it.
Not to speak for Duff but Rapaport is a free agent. He has no sponsorship deals. KD is representing a multi-billion dollar entity known as the NBA. As much as we like to think that these guys are their own people and are free to say whatever they want, they aren't. They are employees of the NBA as much as we are employees of whoever we work for and if I had said something that crass and vulgar and it went public, I'd fully expect some sort of repercussion from my place of work. There's also the added wrinkle of having millions of dollars tied to NBA players through their sponsorship deals.
What Rapaport said to KD isn't ok either. Both sides come off looking like childish a-holes. You would have hoped one of them (possibly KD who has a lot more to lose than Rapaport) would have taken the high road somewhere along the line.
