Phoenix Suns Steve Nash Believes NBA Players Would Accept Gay Teammate
Phoenix Suns superstar Steve Nash told The New York Times that a gay player in the NBA would be not be that big of a deal.
“If a player in the locker room came out, it would come and go quickly, too. I really don’t think it’s a big issue anymore. I think it would be surprisingly accepted, and a shorter shelf life than maybe we would imagine. I think the time has come when it should happen soon. I think it will be something that won’t take on this life of its own. It won’t be the O. J. trial.”
Earlier this month, Nash filmed a video in support of same-sex marriage that was produced by the Human Rights campaign.
