Let’s take a look at the top 10 (allegedly) gay males in sports.

Oh, the dreaded email. the Grizzlies player allegedly sent an email to another man with pictures of himself (posing in the bathroom mirror), saying to keep everything quiet and that he isn’t gay, just curious., and also that he was going to set up a hotel room for them.
2. Atlanta Falcons Fullback Ovie MughelliSource:Getty
So the Atlanta Falcons fullback was outed by his alleged ex-boyfriend who was upset Mughelli broke up with him once he turned pro. Complete with pictures and receipts, he took his business to the website Miss Jia to spill everything.
3. Kerry RhodesSource:Getty
Good ol’ Media Take Out found a pic of Kerry on the beach sharing a pineapple drink with a young man and also hugged up with him. Strong pics to go with the rumor.
4. Stevan RidleySource:Getty
Sooo, this pic was found on the Bleacher Report. If rainbow boots, a onesie, and a studded backback doesn’t say SOMETHIN’, then we don’t know what to tell ya.
5. Eddy CurrySource:Getty
It all started when his former driver sued the basketball player for sexual harassment claiming that he was solicited for gay sex by Curry. Curry denied the claim, saying that his driver made false claims for unpaid wages and kept asking for more money over time.
6. Chris BoshSource:Getty
Where do we begin? It all started when … well, let’s let Chris tell it. “It was this one thing during fashion week: I had my legs crossed, and they called me gay,” Bosh said. “I’ve got my legs crossed, I’m chillin’, I’m getting my grown man on at the event. It just seemed like anything I did, it was always chastised or made fun of.” And the pic. Don’t forget the pic.
7. Manti Te’OSource:Getty
It was the catfish heard around the world. It was speculated that the Notre Dame footballer made up his girlfriend to cover up the fact that he was gay.
8. Carl LewisSource:Getty
it was never proven that he was gay, but rumors began to swirl in the 80’s and it possibly cost the nine-time Olympic medalist some endorsements.
9. Braylon EdwardsSource:Getty
Some pics of Braylon were dispersed on the Internet, and from there on, he was hit with the gay rumors. Those rumors, in fact, seemed to be the reason why his deal with being traded to the Giants never came into fruition. Supposedly a main reason why he wanted to go to New York is because the state is accepting of homosexuality. Maybe the Jets stadium in Jersey is close enough?
10. Magic JohnsonSource:Getty
The rumor is that his NBA player Isiah Washington spread rumors about Magic being gay, and Magic wasn’t too happy about it. “Isiah kept questioning people about it,” Magic said. “I couldn’t believe that. The one guy I thought I could count on had all these doubts. It was like he kicked me in the stomach.”
