Brooklyn Nets Sign First Openly Gay Player Jason Collins


Jason Collins has been in the media alot lately as he has become the first openly gay athlete in North America. According to ESPN:

Collins checked in with 10:28 to go in the second quarter and received a round of applause from the Staples Center crowd.
"Sometimes in life something happens and there's an opportunity," he said shortly before taking on the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night. "I'm very thankful for this opportunity. That's why I work so hard, why I train the way I do so that when I do have an opportunity physically I'm not worried about my conditioning or cardio or anything along those lines."
"The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision," Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. "We needed to increase our depth inside, and with his experience and size, we felt he was the right choice for a 10-day contract."
The Nets tweeted out a picture of Collins signing his contract.
