Jason Collins sits down with ABC for an emotional interview
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."
