Las Vegas – Former UNLV star Larry Johnson is getting heat for his comments about gay athletes.

On his Twitter page, the one-time Rebel and Charlotte Hornets star said, quote, “I don’t know Jason Collins personally but he seems like a great guy. Me personally gay men in the locker room would make me uncomfortable”.When a UNLV fan wrote that homosexuality is “nothing to fear,” Johnson agreed, but said, quote, “I don’t think it belongs in a mans locker room”.

Jonhson is currently employed by his former team the Knicks as part of its business operations staff.
