First Openly Gay Player in...NBA Tonight.

Update:  Jason Collins did get in the game tonight, for 11 minutes.  One (big) step forward.  Watch him enter the game below--to applause from fans in a visiting arena (L.A.).

Earlier:  While all the focus has been on--and remains on, thanks to current "combine"--Michael Sam as the likely first openly gay NFL player, much overlooked is that Jason Collins, who came out as the first NBA player in the off-season and then never got picked up by a team, will make his debut tonight as first openly gay in that league.  He was just picked up by the Brooklyn Nets, after an injury, and will be in uniform tonight and possibly play.
