Remember John Amaechi???
....the 6-10 center who played at Penn State and a few seasons (five to be exact) in the NBA??? Well, he's written a book and in the book he "comes out" and announces his gayness making him the first NBA player to come out publicly. NO this is no big deal, and NO I won't be buying this book BUT I thought it was interesting that he's the FIRST player to come out. Surely there're waaaay more players (past and present) who are gay. SO why hasn't anybody else been outward with their sexuality? It doesn't really make a difference to me if my favorite player is gay. That doesn't take away from his stats or anything. I know he's disappointed the hell out of a few ladies because he's all tall and handsome!! As a heterosexual female, I want all homosexual males to be short and ugly.
