J Michael Covers The Wizards for Comcast Sportsnet, he joined Bob & Steve to talk about the Jason Collins situation.
J Michael said that Jason Collins agent called the Wizards to let them know that he was coming out. Apparently Collins came very close to coming out during the season but he didn’t want it to be a distraction to the team.
Steve asked J Michel about if there were any off the record comments made about being opposed to Collins coming out. J Michel said he did receive an off the record comment from a player about being uneasy around a gay teammate, but he obviously could not name the player.
