Former NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire was asked how he'd feel if a teammate was gay.
Stoudemire, who plays for and co-owns Hapoel Jerusalem in Israel, did not hold back.
"I'm going to shower across the street, make sure my change of clothes are around the corner, and drive, take a different route to the gym," Stoudemire said.
Other Israeli Basketball Premier League players in the same news segment as Stoudemire said they would be fine with a gay teammate.

ESPN reports that when Stoudemire was in the NBA, he was fined $50,000 for tweeting a gay slur. In his apology, he wrote, "I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people."
On Sunday, Stoudemire accepted the Martin Luther King Jr. Award for promoting diversity and tolerance, The Huffington Post reports.
