President Obama says gay NBA player can still ‘bang with Shaq’
After Jason Collins came out yesterday, through a piece in Sports Illustrated, as the first professional male gay athlete in the major league sports, it’s only natural the press wanted to ask Obama about it.
The president responded to the question:
“For an individual who has excelled at the highest level to go ahead and say ‘This is who I am. I am proud of it. I’m still a great competitor. I’m still seven-foot tall and can bang with Shaq. And uh, you know, deliver a hard foul.’”
