Back in 2007, former NBA player Tim Hardaway made headlines when he made some anti-gay comments after John Amaechi came out publicly as a gay man.
Fast forward six years and Hardaway is a changed man.
The former Miami Heat player was the first signer of a petition proposing a constitutional amendment to legalize same-sex marriage.
There is an effort to put a proposed constitutional amendment legalizing same-sex marriage on the ballot in Florida in November 2014.
After Amaech's coming out, Hardaway was quoted as saying 'I hate gay people.'
