ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota lawmaker is apologizing for his tweet about the NBA that was seen by some as racist.
Rep. Pat Garofalo, suggested in a tweet Sunday night that pro basketball players have criminal tendencies.
Garofalo's tweet said most NBA teams could fold and ''nobody would notice a difference w /possible exception of increase in streetcrime.''
Garofalo initially stuck by his words and said they were misinterpreted as racist. But late Monday morning, he put out a statement of apology.
Garofalo says the NBA has many examples of players and owners who are good role models.
