Good for him - granted, I wish this wasn't headline news. Not to detract from his announcement, but the real social experiment will be when a Top 20 player or a franchise cornerstone comes out.

Oh look, a website where half the comments aren't homophobic abuse towards the guy or people trying to say that being gay is a choice, I think I'll stay here.

Our community has its fair share of ignorance, but when it comes to sexual orientation/preference, we're easily one of the most accepting I've seen online. The overwhelming support for Laura Jane Grace definitely is a prime example.

Wait, what? Happy for the guy and all that, but it's 2013 and there's only one openly gay man playing professional basketball in America? Damn.
Former Jazz center John Amaechi came out after his basketball career and wrote a book about his experiences dealing with homophobia, but no active pro athletes have ever come out.
