Amaechi comments on Collins, says he had it easier because he was British
Former NBA player John Amaechi joined the show to talk about his advice for Jason Collins on coming out and the impact of Collins’ story in Sports Illustrated.
Amaechi looked back and said he had teammates who were afraid to be seen with him because of the fear people would think they were gay. He also said that there are team athletes who are out within the team but not in public.
Amaechi told Dan he had an advantage over Collins, because the American media couldn’t tell the difference between a gay person and British person.
