NBA Player Jason Collins: I?m Gay

The times they are a changing. The NBA has it’s first openly gay, active player — Jason Collins of the Washington Wizards.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, the 34-year old center revealed that he never intended to break the barrier but didn’t want to hide either.

I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”

He continued, “I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation.”

Collins and his twin brother were ranked as the top players in the country and went on to play at Stanford University.

Now that he’s out, do you think more players will follow suit?
