When Jason Collins stepped on the court Sunday night as the first openly gay NBA player, he was greeted by a standing ovation from his hometown of Los Angeles. "I thought it was great," Collins said after the game. "Being an L.A. kid, I can't think of a better situation, playing for the Nets and playing here, and getting the win." The adulation didn't stop with the Staples Center crowd; Collins also received support on Twitter.
