Garrett remains the best player in the draft and the Browns appear to be in his future
Myles Garrett arrived at the NFL Combine last week as the best player in the draft, and he’s done nothing to dispel those sentiments based on the shorts-and-t-shirts portion of his workout for coaches, scouts and front-office types in Indianapolis.
Collins also mocked the fact that Stoudemire had just been award the Martin Luther King Jr. Award, which claims to be awarded to individuals who ‘embody the spirit and ideals of Dr. Kings through their efforts to promote diversity and tolerance’.
This isn’t the first time Stoudemire, who retired from the NBA after the 2015-16 season, has exhibited homophobic tendencies.
In 2012, the 34-year-old was fined $50,000 after tweeting a gay slur to a fellow Twitter user. At the time, Stoudemire released a statement, saying, “I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people. I am disappointed in myself for my statement to a fan. I should have known better and there is no excuse.”
Stoudemire is yet to release a statement following his latest comments.
Now a 12-season league veteran, 2005 No.1 draft pick Bogut will back-up Cavs centre Tristan Thompson. He will join former Mavericks teammate Deron Williams in the Cleveland line-up, with the former All Star guard making an impressive team debut in a loss to the Celtics on Thursday (AEDT).
Bogut averages 10.0 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.6 blocks in 29.1 average minutes across 670 games (651 starts) in the NBA. The Cavs are his fourth team, joining Milwaukee, Golden State and Dallas.
