Openly gay NBA player has heard comments from another player

Brooklyn Nets center Jason Collins revealed Thursday that he has heard negative comments from another player during a game. Collins, the NBA's first active openly gay player, would not reveal the identity of the player or the team he plays for. He told ESPNNewYork.com that he did not react to the comments while on the court.

"There's no need to even engage in a conversation with him at that point," Collins said. "In the flow of the game, you have emotions going. It goes back to controlling what I can control -- having self control and having the discipline to recognize it for what it is and keep the focus on the game. "We're all human. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. You hope that if someone has a negative opinion, that they would keep it to themselves. But at the same time, I understand that in the NBA, we're a bunch of individuals and this is America and everyone's entitled to their opinion."

You are probably right, I don't think being on on the same team would stop Garnett from saying anything.
