My Thoughts:

 

Who cares, really?  So what the dude is gay, doesn't change a darn thing about how he plays the game of basketball.

I get annoyed by the people who make a big deal over their sexual orientations be it same sex or opposite sex.

Maybe its bigger than the individual. Coming out as a active gay player in one of the 4 major sports . This is a defining moment in sports.  The Jackie Robinson of gay athletes. It encourages others, fosters an open, relaxed accepting atomosphere in the locker rooms. There is a long way to go until it is not a big deal. Until it doesn’t merit the cover of Sports Illustrated, until leagues don’t have to warn teams not to ask about the preferences of incoming rookie. In reply to your pro athletes are homophobic bit. I remember when former NBA superstar Tim Hardaway said "I hate gay people" "dont want them on my team or to be near them" before trying to backpeddal from the backlash.  Maybe athletes hold their tongue when it comes to things like this? If you need proof, you can find it on youtube.

Because a symptom of being gay is an uncontrollable raging libido.

I'd be shocked if that happened, but I don't think it ever will.

I think it's great news an active player has decided to come out. More people need to realize being gay is not this horrible thing, and that we're all just human beings in the end.
