As well as ESPN sportscaster in New York Jared Max. Things are moving in the right direction, albeit slowly but moving none the less.

Even Charles Barkley said he probably played with gay basketball players during his NBA career and it's no big deal for him. It's all about a teammates performance. On the court that is! :D

Sexual orientation should not matter.

I find it amusing that some get all upset about the idea of a gay man showering with the straights. Like they are in some kind of danger. These supposedly macho guys are afraid of being raped by what they believe to be a sissy gay player! Or they don't want to be watched or lusted after. Guys do it to girls all the time - leering and flirting and sometimes harassing.
