Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban: There are More Gay Players and Whether They Come Out is Irrelevant

Marc cubanDuring yesterday’s Dallas Mavericks-Brooklyn Nets game, Mavericks owner and Athlete Ally board member Mark Cuban sounded off on Nets center Jason Collins and the possibility of other gay NBA athletes. The Dallas Morning News reports:

“We already know there’s more gay players in the league,” Cuban said. “Whether they come out or not is irrelevant. It’s just personal preference. There’s no reason to ever, ever discuss anybody’s sexuality because that’s their private business and there’s no reason to start now.”

And for those keeping score, the Nets managed to eke out a 107-104 victory over the Mavs.
