Earlier this week, Jason Collins came out as gay, making him the first openly homosexual active player in a major American sport.
And the outpour of support just keeps on coming!
Kobe Bryant is the Collins' latest peer to stand behind the Wizards Center.
When the story first broke, Bryant tweeted "Proud of @jasoncollins34. Don't suffocate who u r because of the ignorance of others."
Now, he's told E! that "The biggest key is for everybody to be comfortable being themselves."
The Laker added "As his peers we have to support him, just rally around him."
