Jason Collins targeted

Since returning to the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets after announcing that he was gay last April, Jason Collins has had a relatively quiet season but he has had detractors from within the league and recently shared one of those situations with the media.  Not wanting to cause a stir, Collins left the player unnamed.  

"One player, one knucklehead from another team," Collins said. "He's a knucklehead. So I just let it go. Again, that goes back to controlling what you can control. That's how I conduct myself - just being professional." 

"As an individual, as a person, as a human being, you have a lot of different hats that you wear," he said. "Whether you're an athlete or a human being trying to empower and help others. I'm trying to, again, empower and help others any way that I can."
