Just saw that the nets signed Jason Collins and put him on the court. For those that don't know, he is an NBA player who was unsigned and came out and stated he was gay. I have no problem with that, my problem lies in the fact that with Michael Sam coming out before the NFL draft he was slated to be the first openly gay active player in the 4 major sports leagues. To me it seems that the Nets saw this as a way to jump the gun and be able to say that they had the first openly gay athlete in the 4 major sports. Collins played for my favorite basketball team (Boston Celtics) for a short period of time before he came out and after watching him I am convinced that the Nets didn't sign him for his basketball skills. Is this going to be trend in the major sports? Signing less qualified athletes just for bragging rights about their lifestyle? Thoughts?
