It’s been a long time coming for center Jason Collins. After announcing that he was gay back in April, Collins struggled to find an NBA team that would sign him. He prepared himself for the midseason call and his hard work finally paid off when the Brooklyn Nets signed him to a 10-day contract on Sunday. He made his debut on the same day against the Los Angeles Lakers last night.
He entered the game to a great standing ovation early in the second quarter. During the game, Collins wore the Nike Air Max Hyperaggressor in his debut. He finished scoreless with two rebounds and a steal in 11 minutes of action. You can pick up the shoe for $55.
