    I sort of have an Alfred E. Neuman attitude about this, but would it have been possible just a few years back? College roommate of young Kennedy, friend of Chelsea Clinton, NBA player, given an attaboy by Bill Clinton in the news articles, comes out in Sports Illustrated, which is not exactly the local fish wrapper for the sports crowd. Certainly of remark.

    Well done Jason - that took courage. Very proud of you and hope more take after your example. (And on a completely shallow note - you're absolutely gorgeous.)

    Wow .... love that he did it on his terms.

    AND LOVE the last few sentences: "Pro basketball is a family. And pretty much every family I know has a brother, sister or cousin who's gay. In the brotherhood of the NBA, I just happen to be the one who's out."
