Andrew Wiggins of Minnesota Timberwolves says he meant no disrespect with ‘gay’ remark

NBA


Hours after he called Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder “gay,” Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins sought to clarify his remark, saying early Wednesday morning that he wouldn’t use “any term to disrespect” the LGBT community.

Wiggins made the remark about Schroder to reporters following the Wolves’ 119-117 win Tuesday over the Thunder.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with him. Uh, he was just gay. He was acting crazy for no reason,” Wiggins said. “I look right through him. He’s not someone I look at as a problem. Not at all.”

After video surfaced of Wiggins’ comments about Schroder, he later posted on his Twitter account.

During the game, Schroder was not happy with Minnesota players after the Thunder’s Nerlens Noel was taken off on a stretcher because of a head injury while trying to defend a dunk attempt by Wiggins.
