This really sounds like one big huge publicity stunt. How long has it been since he's played in the league?

Congratulations to Old Man Collins (The W) - coming out was an excellent career move. Let's see if he can nab that coveted SECOND 10-day contract!

April.

Reported says the Nets were trying to sign Glen Davis, he decided to go elsewhere, they felt they still needed a big, and Jason Kidd suggested his old teammate. Which all would be seen as completely normal if we didn't know much about Jason Collins.

"Jason Collins of the Nets is the first openly gay player. Now he should try to be the Nets' first openly good player." -- Jimmy Fallon



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Yup, already paying off:

    The NBA plans to donate proceeds from sales of Jason Collins jerseys to the Matthew Shepard Foundation and the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.




I just realized the statuses are weiner-references.
