ONCE A HOMOSEXUAL SPEAKS TO YOU THE VIRUS TAKES EFFECT UNLESS YOU CAN MANAGE TO OUTRUN IT! HE NEEDS TO FIND JERRY SLOAN AND GET JERRY TO BEAT THE HOMO BUG OUT OF HIM! THEN JERRY CAN TAKE HIM STRAIGHT TO UTAH!!! IT'S HIS ONLY CHANCE!!!

asking him about attending pride parade was not the reason I was upset with the interview. That is completely fine. The way he went about it though, was completely unprofessional. When you start an interview stating your name is gay I am gay, how immature does that sound, really? you could see how uncomfortable rudy gay was in that interview. the only thing to do with basket ball in that interview was the clippers game, and he didnt even know how many points he actually scored. THIS WAS NOT ABOUT BEING GAY, it was about how unprofessional the interview was.

He wasn't uncomfortable in the least. And there was nothing immensely unprofessional about it. He asked him reasonable questions as a gay man that works for a radio station that caters to a gay audience.

i actually have nothing against the guy interviewing him or the questions he's asking, but the way he's asking him just tells you he knows nothing about bball
the guy's like in your first game you has like 20 or something points, if you were a Raptors fan you would know what he scored or at least would have searched it before the interview

if you look at his other interviews, he clearly goes into a passive sort of mode after the way the questions were asked, the only thing that looked to get the life back into the interview was when he was asked if he used to get made fun of when he was younger. I am not saying whether the questions were reasonable or not. The way they were asked was unprofessional

He knew how the interview was going to go down. Media relations sets these things up. He knew it wasn't going be go much beyond his name and casual sports knowledge. I've got a lot of respect for him doing the interview and handling it well.

I saw nothing wrong about the interview, it was weird ... sure. Weird cause the way he was holding the camera, and it wasn't really basketball related talking about the gay parade and what not. But it wasn't offensive nor discouraging for Rudy. All he said his last name was cool, and he should be proud of it. And he's got a gay community which love his last name, what's wrong with that? It's not like he said he IS Gay/homo, for having Gay as his last name. I'm sure Rudy is aware that Gay people prolly like his jersey... and he knows his last name is synonym for homosexual... which some people are. He even said he was praising him for his last name, not messing with him.

The interviewer has a really condescending tone, very immature and unprofessional... waste of time / dumbass interview.

He knew it was going to be for a gay radio station. Unlike some of you guys, he probably spent enough time around a gay person not to think what was going on there was condescending or unprofessional. If it was done for an audience of ports fans it would have been ridiculous. Much like Gerry Dee and Cabbie, which you don't hear a lot of complaints about. But it wasn't intended for you and I. Going into an all-caps rage and saying that Rudy will surely leave is sad and pathetic. Spend some time with a gay dude. It's not contagious. You will find yourself rolling your eyes often, but they will be rolling their eyes as well and will not be bothered by that.
