    As an informed sports fan, I must admit I'm a bit disappointed.  Collins is at the end of his career.  His skills were never great and have diminished greatly in recent years.  The past couple of seasons he has more fouls than points.  All this is important because Jason is a free agent and DOES NOT HAVE A TEAM TO PLAY FOR NEXT YEAR.  Without this announcement, he most certainly would not have been signed for next year.  Maybe an NBA team signs him to show solidarity.  But if he doesn't get signed, I'm afraid that people will say that he's being blackballed, when the truth is he isn't very good.  Sigh.  It would have been so much more effective for everyone looking to advance equality for all people had he come out during the season.  I wish him the best of luck no matter how this pans out.  Very brave.
