While Tim Duncan is still in the midst of the gay rumors, the San Antonio Spurs veteran was one of the first basketball players to support Jason Collins when he came out earlier this year.

Back in April, Collins, the 12-year-veteran became the first active player in a major men's North American team sport to announce his homosexuality. 

The 34-year-old who played for teams such as the Washington Wizards and the former New Jersey Nets received an outpouring of support and admiration from the sports world.

At the time, Tim reportedly said, "Really hope people will RESPECT Jason Collins for his decision to come out. Just glad he can now relax and not be afraid to be who he is."

Meanwhile, Tim's teammate Danny Green appeared on New York's Power 105.1 radio station to address if he believed the rumors. 

"Ugh I didn't hear anything about it," Green responded. "I just recently heard about it. Somebody saying rumors."When asked if he would feel comfortable with Tim on his team even if he was gay, Green said that he wouldn't look at the Spurs center any "differently."

"Basketball is basketball," he added. "I didn't hear anything about it. And I definitely haven't suspected anything. He's going through some stuff and that's what happens when you go through a divorce. It gets ugly."

Enstars reported earlier that Tim's wife of 12 years filed for divorce back in March. While reports indicated that Tim hired a private investigator to spy on his estranged wife, later claims noted that Amy accused the basketball player of having a relationship with another man. 

Hollywood Street King first indicated that Tim lived with another man four years after attending college at Wake Forest University together. During the first two years of Amy and Tim's marriage, the unidentified man was living in the same house at the couple before Tim reportedly purchased a condo for his friend.
