The Tim Duncan is gay/bisexual rumors aren't going away.
A New York radio station, 105.1 broached the subject recently with Spurs player Danny Green.
Pretty good interview that's enclosed with the piece and if you watch it, the radio station mixes no punches, they get right to the goods.
Danny Green, a shooting guard for the Spurs, appeared on the morning show for New York's Power 105.1 earlier this week. The hosts then asked Green about these Tim Duncan gay rumors.
Green defended Duncan saying he doesn't care one way or another.
"Timmy is Tim," Green continued. "I'm not going to look at him any differently. He's my teammate regardless of his sexual preferences. I haven't heard anything about it and I definitely haven't suspected anything. He's going through some stuff, and that's what happens when you go through a divorce sometimes. It gets ugly."
Indeed, these Tim Duncan gay rumors first spread because of the Spurs star's impending divorce. An Internet report claimed that Amy Duncan believed her ex was cheating on her with his male friend.
"Amy treated Tim like a b*tch throughout their marriage because she knew he was f*cking his BFF," the source said. "Tim knows Amy was cheating on him, but he's willing to give her whatever she wants, because he doesn't want Amy to tell the world he's bisexual."
Tim Duncan reportedly met this alleged boyfriend while attending college at Wake Forest. The man even reportedly lived with Duncan and his wife for two years after they got married.
Of course, these Tim Duncan gay rumors are completely unsubstantiated at the moment. They are also just one piece of what has become a messy divorce for the Spurs star. Reports indicate that Amy Duncan may have cheated on her husband with her personal trainer. Tim Duncan reportedly hired a private investigator to follow Amy.
If Tim Duncan is gay, he would not be the first NBA player to come out as homosexual. Jason Collins revealed that he is gay in a Sports Illustrated interview earlier this year. Duncan was one of several athletes to support Collins following the announcement.
"Really hope people will RESPECT Jason Collins for his decision to come out," the forward wrote at the time. "Just glad he can now relax and not be afraid to be who he is."

Not to take anything away from Project Spurs' very own Jesse Blanchard. Trust me, he is one great artist but this drawing of San Antonio Spurs' Tiago Splitter ranks right up there in the "coolness" spectrum.
