Torii Hunter made news this offseason when he signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.

But the veteran outfielder, one of the most thoughtful and respected players in Major League Baseball, has now made different kind of headlines.

Torii Hunter Press Conference

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Hunter expressed his feelings about ever playing with a gay teammate.

"For me, as a Christian... I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, it's not right," Hunter replied. "It will be difficult and uncomfortable."

Earlier this year, boxer Orlando Cruz came out of the closet - but no active team member has ever admitted he was gay.

What do you think of Hunter's comments? They are...

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade conspicuously kicked Ramon Sessions in the groin the other night, and the NBA has kicked him to the curb for one game.

The All-Star has been suspended for today's matchup with Detroit.

Though not called by referees, the play (below) earned him a one-game suspension, which Wade was not pleased about, taking to Twitter to defend himself.

"I'm far from being a dirty player, + my intent was never 2 kick Ramon Sessions ... I just reacted to the contact that I got from him," Wade said Thursday night.

Avery Johnson is out.

Might the most successful coach in sports history be in?

With the Brooklyn Nets stumbling to a 14-14 record early this season, sources tell ESPN that former Bulls and Lakers coach Phil Jackson is the team's top choice to take over on the bench.

However, Jackson's rep, Todd Musburger, told TNT's David Aldridge yesterday that his client has "no interest in the Nets' job at this time."

He may have fallen out of favor in New York, but Tim Tebow has a major fan in Hollywood.

With the quarterback receiving flak for the rumor last week that he refused to take the field for the Jets - a rumor Tebow shot down yesterday - Josh Duhamel has come out in support of the former Heisman winner.

ESPN analyst Merril Hoge has been especially harsh toward Tebow, recently saying he's as "phony as a three-dollar bill" and asking fans in Denver if they care any more that he no longer plays in that city.

In response to that final question, Duhamel unleased on Twitter.

Just days after benching Kris Humphries, Avery Johnson has been fired by the Brooklyn Nets.

The former point guard was dismissed by the team after posting a 14-14 record through 28 games; he had ironically been named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start.

Johnson, Avery

"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said of the decision.

Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson may have been obvious selections for the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters, which were announced last night.

But, to many, the same could be said of Richard Sherman and Alfred Morris.

And yet the Seahawks cornerback and Redskins rookie running back were left off the roster entirely, leading a group of snubbed players and resulting in a series of shocked, angry Tweets.

"@RSherman_25 is the only player in NFL history to have 5+ ints, 3FF, 2TDs, and a sack. i guess he is too good for the pro bowl," reads one confused message, though accusations of performance-enhancing drugs likely affected Sherman's chances.

A Tim Tebow trade will almost certainly go down this offseason, if the team doesn't cut its backup quarterback outright.

But while he's still a member of this terrible organization, the maligned quarterback wants to set the record straight: No, he never refused to play for the squad during last week's game against San Diego.

Tim Tebow as a Jet

Because Mark Sanchez sucks, he was benched in favor of Greg McElroy, with reports then surfacing that Tebow - offended over being passed over for the gig - told Rex Ryan not to use him at all in the game.

Not even in the Wildcat formation for which his skill set is supposedly made.
