Tim Hardaway: The Heat Should Retire My Number

With Alonzo Mourning’s Heat number retired, Tim Hardaway said, ”I deserve to be up there” too. Hardaway attributes his inability to get an NBA job to his 2007 ”I don’t like gay people” comment — despite his apologies. ”I thought we were supposed to forgive and forget but it’s not happening.” Hardaway said Michigan, Minnesota, UF and FSU are showing interest in son Tim Jr., a 6-5 junior swingman at Miami Palmetto who averaged 23 points and 11 rebounds. But ”we’re disappointed Miami has not shown more interest.”
