Rumor: New Jersey Net comes out of the closet.

This shouldn't be news.


Let the guy do what he wants on his own time.


I agree, but it's still fun to speculate. Hmm, Vince or RJ? :D RJ seems the answer at first blush, but do we know if he hangs out w/ Tyson Beckford? Az's picture confirms Vince does, so I'll guess him.

Then again, it seems that Jefferson has done quite a bit of thinking about this subject, I'm thinking of changing my answer:


The locker-room truth, as told by Richard Jefferson of the New Jersey Nets, is that athletes shower and dress in communal spaces and that many would feel uneasy about doing so in front of a gay teammate.


The first openly gay male athlete will have to be a respected superstar, Jefferson said, likening it to Magic Johnson announcing that he had contracted the virus that causes AIDS. If there's an athlete thinking about coming out, Jefferson offered this how-to:


"You would have to approach your teammates and be like, 'Look, this is who I am. I don't like any of you. I'm not trying to pick up on any of you,' " he said. "Would it make people feel uncomfortable? Of course it would."
