“This is all hard to understand,” Moos, who is 6-foot-6 and a former standout basketball player in the Women’s National Basketball Association, told TMZ. “I care about (Jason) tremendously and only want the best for him.

Jason Collins is a free agent going into next season. He isn’t a great basketball player. Having played for six teams, he would be accurately described as a journeyman.
But his journey has only begun. In a very real way, Jason Collins is Jackie Robinson. He’s Rosa Parks. He’s Amelia Earhart. What is heartwarming and immensely encouraging is that — at least from initial reactions — his journey might not be as arduous as what was encountered by those other brave pioneers.
