Im sure David Stern came to the players like… “OK… we need a player to handle the homosexual public relations”
bigger than that. they started with the basketball ads with grant hill about how gay as an insult is not acceptable. then like a month back they had that one journalist from espn, gay dude on first take – first time i ever saw that. now jason collins. i bet they got like a 1-3 yr pr plan they’re rolling out. and then once everyone is on board media-wise then everyone can go back to business as usual.
these things never happen by chance though. its like ppl who think rosa parks randomly one day decided not to get up out her seat. this is political maneuvers. power moves.
