Affirmative action in the NBA
This is just plain absurd. Jason Collins is not a very good player. He has never been a very good player. He has always been below average at best, by NBA standards. Now he's old, and way past his prime.
He was signed only as a token, a mascot and a public relations gimmick. He might as well be "Token Black" on South Park. If Jason Collins was heterosexual, he would not have a job in the NBA. This is affirmative action, nothing more.
