I remember everyone assuming the Net that was said to be gay years ago was Richard Jefferson. Not that he cant be as well. His not quite wife had some odd comments when he ditched her like...day of the wedding.

This is great. Makes it easier for other gays in the NBA or gay people wanting to become athletes to do so. There are so few homosexuals in pro sports it is ridiculous

That coupled with the fact that he's a stiff should officially end his career.

Ignore list growing him. Damn some people are dumb.

It's much tougher being a gay in professional sport because it is viewed as abnormal by many (pro sports guy too)

What's the point of just telling some people? Word gets around then you got your distant aquaintances coming up to you, like yo? I heard you play catcher for the pink team?" And then you gotta confirm or deny, and they're gonna tell ppl and it doesn't come out your own mouth and makes you look bad...I mean it's a no brainer really...

He's the first openly gay player in all of pro sports. I don't think you understand and probably never will understand how incredibly difficult it was for him to do this.

He is already a 34 year old "scrub" who saw little playing time anyways.

Can a man go into a women's bathroom? Why? I guess it's because we are sexually attracted to women. To see women's "private" parts would be considered wrong. To gaze and look upon their features, while they are showering, etc with a sexual intent, would be considered wrong.

So, how is it that a "homosexual" can do the same? Should we now how 4 bathrooms/locker rooms? One for heterosexual males, one for heterosexual females, and one for the homosexual counterparts?

See.. once you open pandora's box, you can't close it.

Richard Jefferson is definitely suspect. Him leaving that girl at the altar made it even more so.

He is a scrub like Amichi. This will have no bearing on anything.

If it was a star athlete it would be a story.

Read about Justin Fashanu's struggling with being gay.

It's nothing weirder about being homosexual than being heterosexual. But that's what people like you make it look like on the internet.

As I said previously in Iceland we don't view gays in other ways we view other people. You might have read about the mayor of Reykjavik (Letter to Moscow thing), who openly campaigns with gay people to support their cause.

If this comment gets deleted or I banned I will seriously start hating Jeff.

What is the logic behind that?

If they start allowing this, men should be able to go into women's locker rooms/bath rooms, and women should be allowed in mens bathrooms and locker rooms. Since we're all so "accepting" these days......
