NBA veteran Jason Collins became the first active male player in the four major American professional sports to come out as gay.

Jason Collins ---COLLINS COMES OUT

The 34-year-old center, who has played for six teams in 12 seasons, wrote a first-person account that was posted on Sports Illustrated's website Monday. Collins finished the season with the Washington Wizards and is now a free agent. He says he wants to keep playing.

''If I had my way, someone else would have already done this,'' he writes.''Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand.''

Collins played in a Final Four for Stanford and reached two NBA Finals. His twin brother, Jarron, was also a longtime NBA center. Collins says he told his brother he was gay last summer.

''Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue,'' NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement

As this message is written, this case is airing on CBS national right now. The question is, did their orientation formulate before adolescence, or is this trend on the rise because they're beginning to realize their general desirability by women is lackluster? Perhaps a little of both.

He is NOT an "active" player. He is currently a free agent after playing the 12-13 season with the Washington Wizards. At his age , and rather dismal lifetime statistics.(3.6 career ppg as a 7-FOOT CENTER !!), his career may well be over.

I'll give him credit for what he did , but he's hardly the second coming of Jackie Robinson. Why didn't he announce this at the beginning of the season , when he actually would have to face teammates in the locker room? He senses his career might be over , so he waits until now to come "out" , knowing he can just fade away into post-NBA life.

Sorry , but that's just a little cowardly to me.

NEVER teach a young black male that THEIR choice of making it, is being a ball player or an entertainer. The problem with society is making it appear as if blacks(in general) still are not capable of the many thing everyone else is. Tell the children they can be an astronaut, firefighter, president,etc...Let the children dream BIGGER... change are sure to come.

We are in a day where everything wrong we want to say is right because we are human. Those who stand for the right are ridiculed because they understand what is wrong.
