Sports Illustrated Interviews first openly gay NBA Player
Jason Collins is a free agent. Hes a skilled center that can provide stout defense off of the bench, and hes a veteran presence. Hes also just become the first openly gay athlete in professional North American team sports.
Throughout his 12-year NBA career, the journeyman center has been known for leaving an indelible imprint on every game he plays without putting up major numbers. Hed defend the leagues best big men expertly, changing the course of both regular season and major playoff games with his work on that end, while barely adding points or rebounds to the box score. If you werent watching, you wouldnt know he was there; much less what sort of impact he made.
Now, after a game-changing interview with Sports Illustrated, Jason Collins has made a sports-altering impact. The free agent center, who played with both Boston and Washington in 2012-13, has announced he is gay. And the calmness and confidence in his revelation befits a man who was always just fine with playing a style of game that left him unnoticed by all but those who were paying close attention.
