So, Jason Collins!

Undercuts a lot of stereotypes, considering that Collins is mainly known for being a tough low post defender not afraid to take a charge or stand his ground against the likes of Shaq and Dwight. He probably has the highest "elbows-taken-to-points-scored" ratio in recent NBA history.

Odds are even better than the ones I'm laying about 2013-14...

Marc Stein (ESPN):

Of the first 14 teams reached by ESPN.com in an anonymous survey, six said they expect to see Jason Collins in the NBA next season in the wake of his revelation Monday that he is gay.

The other eight teams that expressed some measure of doubt all cited Collins' age and corresponding questions about his ability to make a productive on-court contribution as the overriding reason he wouldn't be able to find a job for his 13th season, not because of fallout from the announcement.

Although one Eastern Conference executive acknowledged that it's inevitable that Collins' newfound status as the first active player in North American team sports to come out as gay "would have to be discussed" internally by any team considering him, those eight teams expressing a degree of skepticism about Collins' hopes of finding future employment were unanimous in saying the decision would be overwhelmingly tied to his playing ability.

"The reality," said one Western Conference executive, "is that he's been an end-of-the-roster kind of player for the last couple years."

Little lesson here. Being gay means you aren't attracted to the same sex. I know it's hard for some people to see the world outside of how they are but I have news for you...there are gay people out there and they don't have an attraction like you do to the opposite sex. Any questions? or are you and Mike Wallace just going to continue living in a shallow world with a shallow worldview?
