Support for Jason Collins
NBA player Jason Collins was recently signed by the Brooklyn Nets and took the court, becoming the first openly gay athlete to compete in one of America's "Big 4" sports. While many have expressed worry about how openly gay athletes will be treated in the locker room, we present this Video of the Week, which shows other professional basketball players voicing their support for Collins. We hear from the well-respected players Metta World Peace, Steve Nash, Chauncey Billups, and Jamal Crawford. For more on the gay pride movement in America, contact our staff or browse our website.
