John Amaechi will be the first NBA player to come out of the closet in the history of the league. Amaechi began his career with Cleavland in 95. After a short overseas hiatus, Amaechi came back and played for Orlando in 99 and 00, then signed with Utah for 01 and 02.
I bet his former teammates feel like I did after I watched the Snickers Super Bowl commercial. It's the aquivalent of me being in the locker room at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show.
