    but have basketball players starting f**king their lovers on the court?

    Because if not, frankly I can't even see why it matters which type of bits the players prefer, whether they be same-ies or different-ies.

    Basketball = sport

    Orientation = irrelevant to sport

    Why is this even an issue?  

    "Openly gay".  I know what that means but WTF does that mean?

    I like men, so am I "openly" straight or just "straight"?  

    "Openly" in itself implies it's not okay for people to know it about you.

    Or do people think "openly" gay means kissing guys in front of large crowds while on the court?

    I kinda don't get why this is a story, other than than it is a brave break from the "don't ask/tell" aspect of sports.
