Homosexuality in the NBA

Jason Collins has just come out and is the first openly gay man to be actively playing in the NBA. John Amaechi came out after his playing days were over.

Here is a link to an ESPN story about it

This is a courageous thing to do, even in the waning time of his career. I bet it is a terrifying thing to do without knowing how your teammates or others in the league will react. It is a courageous act today that I hope leads the way for for others.

I hope one day a story like this is met with sighs of 'whatever' from everyone as people being themselves is not a newsworthy event.

He is a free agent and I wish him well.
