Please spare us your ridiculously laughable attempt at nobility Jason Collins. You’re a 34-year-old NBA center. You’re black. And you’re gay? And you’re an embarrassment to the game that has given you everything! You want to be genuine, authentic and truthful? Too late my friend, you’ve already outed yourself for the complete and total phony you are!
What in the world does your sexual preference have to do with the game of basketball? Let me put it another way for you. What does SEX have to do with what you are paid for, what your team-mates depend on you for and what the fans come to see you for? Have you ever heard of the term “unintended consequences” genius? My guess is that you’ve probably spent way more time on perfecting your jump shot, and far too little in cultivating your mind. I bet your agent put you up to this…talk show circuit…book deals? How much is the human soul worth do you think Jason? Are you paying much attention to the world off the court?
The game is GREAT, because the game has always been about THE GAME…played by real men who never placed themselves above it! This has been true of every great American sport! But you have allowed yourself to be used to advance an agenda that has nothing to do with the game of basketball. In fact, congratulations…that is your Trojan Horse prancing merrily about the parquet! Into a world that relies on team-building, you have rolled out the red carpet to team-dividing…all because JASON COLLINS has become more important than the game!
You’re a 34-year-old NBA center. You’re black. And you’re gay?? Well I’m 59-year-old CFP advisor. I’m white. And I don’t care! I care if you can drop a 3-pointer at the buzzer when it counts! 34 certainly matters…and Jimmy the Greek might have picked you for his team on the basis of your color…but how does professing your immorality benefit the game of basketball, your team and this society…Jason?
