Jason Collins, the NBA player who recently came out as being gay, sat down with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos for an emotional interview that aired on Tuesday's episode of "Good Morning America."
Stephanopoulos opened the interview by asking Collins how it feels to send this "thunderbolt out to the world."
"It's incredible. You just try to live an honest, genuine life and next thing you know you have the president calling you."
Collins wants to let young aspiring pro-basketball players know, "it doesn't matter that you're gay, but the key thing is that it's about basketball. It's about working hard. It's about sacrificing for your team."
