Timothy Duane (Tim) Hardaway (born September 1, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois) is a retired American basketball point guard who played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and who in his prime was one of the league's best at his position. Six feet (1.83 m) tall, he was best known for his crossover dribble (dubbed the UTEP Two-step by television analysts), a move which he utilized and which seemingly caused a revolution in the NBA,[1] and is still used by several current players, notably Allen Iverson and Dwyane Wade. In February 2007, Hardaway caused controversy over a series of homophobic remarks he made. He has since apologized for the statements.
