On Valentines Day in 2007, Hardaway wasn't feeling the love when he told Dan Le Batard "I hate gay people." In case you heard that and thought "Where's he going with this?" He clarified by following with "I don't like gay people." Over the course of the past six years Hardaway has claimed to have a change of heart and called Jason Collins, after he came out, as a sign of support. He also supported same sex marriage in his resident state of Florida and symbolically was the first to sign a pro gay marriage petition.

On a familial level he was in the crowd for this year's National Championship to watch Michigan and his son, Tim Jr., lose to Louisville. In June, Tim Jr. was taken 24th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks. Now Tim Sr. can root for his son with a Knicks skully halfway covering his dome.
