Welcome back Jason Collins! One of my favorite all time Nets. He will now be the first openly gay athlete in professional sports #Brooklyn

IMO 2 compare Jason Collins 2 Jackie Robinson is an abomination. JR could actually play at a high level while JC is off the scrap heap #Nets

But, seriously it's phenomenal Jason Collins signed with the Nets, because if anyone even looks at him funny KG will literally kill them.

Proud that my favorite team is set to become the first organization in sports to have an openly gay player on their team. #Nets

Jason Collins wanted 1 thing, for this to be a basketball decision. It is. Nets traded Evans & missed on Davis, have a need for his skills

Only reason why Jason Collins is a big deal is cause he is gay. He is a mediocre player

How come the media praises Michael Sam and Jason Collins for coming out but they ridiculed Tebow for being an outspoken Christian?

What's the big deal w/ Jason Collins signing w/ the Nets? He played in the NBA for 12 years! He's no different now, he's the same player…

Sport center is making too big of a deal about Jason Collins being signed by Brooklyn! He's gay! We get it! Talk about something else!!!

Jason Collins is 7'0" and is a career 41% shooter. There's a lot better 7 footers out there.

Good for Jason Collins but seriously the fact that it's breaking news is a joke. Send me a notification when a good player does something.

Let jason collins be and stop analyzing this. He's gay, big whoop, it doesnt matter. Stop blowing it up bigger than it needs to be
