Sir Charles Barkley: ‘I played with gay players’ No Big Deal

May 7, 2013

Charles Barkley says he’s probably played with several gay guys over the years.

The response to Collins’ decision has been overwhelmingly positive, but the concept of playing with a gay player is still a major talking point across the world of sports. Former NBA star Charles Barkley joined The Dan Patrick Show and talked about Collins’ decision to come out, telling Patrick about his experiences with gay players in the locker room.

During the interview, Barkley stated that everyone who has played in the NBA has had a gay teammate at some point.

    Correct. I play with several gay guys over the years too. Basketball player types were never into me though. What’s the big deal?

    I love market economics and choice!!
