Watch Jason Collins’s Historic First Offensive Foul As An Openly Gay Athlete

Througout his career, Jason Collins has been the no-stats all-star, putting up a surprisingly good plus-minus despite bringing very little in terms of scoring, rebounding, and blocking shots. But Collins made his mark as a consummate professional that was willing to throw his weight around, setting hard screens using his six fouls.

Watch history made as Collins does what he does best, setting a hard, illegal screen on Jordan Farmar and getting called for an offensive foul, his first foul on the night and the first called on an openly gay athlete in NBA history.

Collins finished the game leading the bench with a +8 plus-minus and committing five fouls in just under 11 minutes, none more significant than this illegal screen.

Barriers getting broken every day.
