JUSTIN: In a groundbreaking revelation that began to reverberate around the NBA, former player John Amaechi has become the first professional basketball player to openly identify himself as a homosexual. To be honest, while it was a surprise to find out that a former NBA player was gay, it’s a bit anticlimactic if you ask me. Amaechi’s been retired for three years. It’s not like he announced it in the shower after a game. That would be news worthy.
