Thanks for the write up on the coverage of Hardaway's comment.

Interestingly, that article that I linked to a while back suggests that "star" athletes do feel a bit safer coming out while playing than do less-talented athletes. (This is on the college level - & the study focused mainly on individual-ish sports : swimming, running.)

Not only did the more talented athletes have more status on the team, they were, for all intents and purposes, indispensible. In other words, the team wouldn't win without them and winning trumped prejudice...


ahh, the straw man fallacy. Not quite as sexy as "post hoc ergo propter hoc," but just as handy.
