Report: NBA to investigate Amare Stoudemire Twitter slur
Even the offseason can't bring relief for the New York Kincks' Amare Stoudemire. Two months removed from a first-round exit at the hands of the Miami Heat (and the lacerated hand that went with it), the power forward now finds himself in hot water after a heated exchange with a fan via Twitter.
A Deadspin report last week alleges Stoudemire sent a direct message to a fan via the social networking service, calling him a homophobic slur. The report received widespread negative reaction, and now the New York Post reports that the NBA is looking into the matter.
