Do you honestly think anyone in the league is going to publicly come out and belittle Jason Collins? That could be career suicide with everyone wanting to make sure every comment is politically correct these days. A lot of guys could probably care less about it but the media will be wanting comments and putting mics in some faces so they will have to tow the company line.
It's the wanting to get the attention and saying see me I don't like but to each his own. Why didn't he just start living as a homosexual in every day life and just go about his business and let people see the true person he is all the time. I agree as to why does he need to make an announcement. If someone starts dating outside their race I don't see them making announcements. For some reason only gays and lesbians seem to make announcements. While I may not agree with a certain lifestyle I really could care less of your decision and your personal business.
