As we began to pay attention to how the sports world is reacting to Jason Collins coming out as gay, there was a noticeable public silence from Collins’s Wizards teammates. Perhaps they just weren’t glued to Twitter like some of us, because they are now starting to speak up and show support.
Proud to support my teammate and friend @jasoncollins34. Stay true to you!
