Nikola Jokic got fined for saying “no homo” during an interview last season.

After the Nuggets’ win over the Jazz yesterday, Jokic discussed Rudy Gobert.

That phrase reinforces the notion that there’s something wrong with being gay, that a straight person must strain himself to ensure he’s never mistaken for gay.

The underlying message is disgusting and destructive.

The NBA has rightfully deemed that talk to be unacceptable in the workplace.

It’s far more effective to teach why anti-gay language is harmful. Hopefully, people hear that message and heed it.
