Jason Collins Joins Nets ~ Brooklyn's Glaad To Be Gay
Jason Collins spent 7 of his 14 NBA seasons on the Nets & was a big reason the team made it to their 1st ever finals in 2002 against the Lakers & ironically, Jason’s 1st game since coming out – is on the Nets against the Lakers. Jason Collins is the NBA’s 1st openly gay player, but Rodman is still the 1st baller to wear a wedding dress.
Collins signed a 10-day contract & his addition to a veteran roster with teammates he’s played with (Garnett, Pierce, Joe Johnson & Coach Kidd) is a natural fit for the Nets who need big bodies for any kind of a playoff run.A new tree has grown in Brooklyn, good luck JC!!
