With the Combine underway and Collins now signed with the Brooklyn Nets, the landscape of sports and the stereotypical athlete is changing before our eyes.
Collins, is the first openly gay player to be signed to an NBA team. Michael Sam, a University of Missouri football player, just wants to be another football player, not a “gay” football player. No * please.
There are probably varying opinions on this issue, this wouldn’t be news worthy if there weren’t. However, as a former athlete myself, let me just say that I would love my teammate no matter what. Teammates do battle together and thus, regardless of age, gender, sexual preference, et al., the bond between teammates is thicker than any of these superficial differences.
