Honestly, I'm not surprised one bit by the reaction of some, how it has devolved into a discussion about homosexuality and how it is considered "right or wrong" ( by some ) based off of IMHO outdated definition of certain words.
Could the Nets have signed Collins as a PR stunt to get some Media attention?
Could the Nets have signed Collins cuz they needed some Frontcourt help?
Could the Nets have signed Collins cuz they needed some Frontcourt help while getting some PR / Media Attention?
The answer to all of these questions is "Sure, it's entirely possible". The reality is that we do not know what the real motivation the Nets chose to sign Collins to a 10-day contract over others. But I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to the Nets and just assume that it was for legitimate reasons ( cuz they actually needed Frontcourt help ) and not for the reasons that some may have suggested ( for PR reasons ).
I applaud those that stood up and decided to speak up for what they believe and they think is right.
For those that I disagree with, I know that it is a matter of opinion ( which you are entitled to )........so I will leave your words as that...just a matter of opinion and nothing else.
This thread has gone the course that I expected it to go given where the majority of where most PD responders likely comes from ( I'm referring to those that live in Indiana/MidWest where I think that it is a more Conservative part of the Country ).
With that said:
My guess is that this thread won't last that much longer.....probably another 9 days at most.
