"Steve Nash Is OK With Openly Gay Teammate"

USA TODAY: Is the N.B.A. ready for an openly gay player?

STEVE NASH: If a player in the locker room came out, it would come and go quickly, too. I really don’t think it’s a big issue anymore. I think it would be surprisingly accepted, and a shorter shelf life than maybe we would imagine. I think the time has come when it should happen soon. I think it will be something that won’t take on this life of its own. It won’t be the O. J. trial.

Steve Nash is the star point guard for the Phoenix Suns. He also recently made a video supporting marriage equality.
