It’s hard not to find yourself lusting over a sports star. After all, they’re very nice to look at. If they’re involved in a particularly physically demanding sport, odds are they’re at the peak of their physical performance and have all the muscles in all the right places. Plus, if they’re at the best of their sport, they probably earn a boatload of money as well.
And if Dennis Rodman is to be believed, 10 to 20 percent of those hot sports stars you see on the television probably won’t mind engaging in some same-sex action either. In an interview with Business Insider, the former NBA star claimed that up to 20 percent of professional athletes may be gay or bisexual.
“I wouldn’t be surprised, literally, I’ve said it all along, if 10 percent or 20 percent people in the NBA, or any sports, [are] gay,” Rodman told the media outlet. “I wouldn’t be surprised. It wouldn’t shock me at all. I think today, it wouldn’t shock anyone. I think that’d be more acceptable now than anything.”
The interview was part of Rodman’s promotional activities for Rodman: For Better or Worse, an ESPN documentary on Rodman’s career. The documentary has a portion that covers Rodman’s relationship with the LGBTQ community, one that started after he posed for Sports Illustrated in a woman’s bathing suit.
While Rodman does not identify as gay, he has talked about going to gay clubs, dressing up in drag, and even having sexual fantasies about men. In the Business Insider interview, he also says he had no trouble at all playing with Magic Johnson even after the player admitted to being HIV-positive.
“They asked all the players in the NBA, nobody wanted to play with him. They asked me, I said, I don’t give a damn, I just wanna play. I don’t give a damn if he got that,” he shared.
If we take Rodman’s claim to be true and that 10 to 20 percent of people in professional sports are gay, that’s a lot of hot people that you suddenly may have a chance of sleeping with. So we thought we’d ask you, Adam4Adam blog readers if there’s a particular sports star you’ve always lusted over. Share it with us in the comments below!
