12-year NBA veteran Jason Collins, announces he is gay

Support pours in for Jason Collins
Posted on April 29, 2013 at 11:09 am by Dan McCarney in David Stern, Jason Collins, NBA


Collins wrote a piece for Sports Illustrated that was published earlier this morning. He becomes the first active, openly gay athlete in American professional team sports.

“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport,” he wrote. “But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different.’ If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”

Good for him. I think the league is ready for it. I'm sure he'll get some hate though, particularly in Texas.

I don't understand how he has been in the league for so long. He is not much of a player. A seven foot stiff.

Who Cares?

Maybe we should all wear a special colored sleeve that let's everyone know if we are Homo or Hetero sexual.

Being gay is not a sin, acting on it is. For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. What does this have to do with basketball?

I'm sure he will say that if he doesn't. I point to his 16% FG % with the Wizards last season as being the main factor though.

I remember him from the 03 Finals and Tim kicking his ass when he was in there, after that did not know he still played nor cared to!

Silliest comment I saw about this was somebody actually compared him to Jackie Robinson.

Now so many jokes, so little time....
You'd think he'd be better at playing man to man defense than he is....

So that's why he got called for so many touch fouls....


I know it's wrong, but I just couldn't help myself......

The thing is I have said just this before! I don't get how sexual preference makes you a hero or special? Okay you are so be it, better things to worry about in the world than this here. I am glad you put it like that though as far as the last part, don't have to go around all day announcing I am straight and calling it a lifestyle. It is what it is.

Toronto Raptors guard Rudy Gay doesn't understand all the commotion about Jason Collins.

"What's the big deal? I've been Gay since birth."

It's because we still live in a day and age when people will treat you differently because you're gay; it's like masochism or racism. You're right that there are more important things but does that mean that we should not talk about it? I think that in the world of sport it is even harder for a gay person to come out so that's why Jason Collins' come out is important. The fact that many people say "who cares" and still take the time to write that comment shows that it bothers them somehow.

it doesn't bother me that he is gay. The guy has no game on the court and is a free agent. 16% FG% last year.......he needs to hang it up.
