Collins says support after coming out 'incredible'
LOS ANGELES - Jason Collins says the support that he's received since coming out has been "incredible."
In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America", Collins says that he believes people are ready to support an openly gay basketball player.
The 34-year-old became the first active player in one of the four major U.S. pro sports leagues to come out as gay, doing so in a first-person article posted Monday on Sports Illustrated's website.
Collins told interviewer George Stephanopoulos that he never set out to be the first openly gay player. He also says he doesn't know of any other NBA players who are gay.
