Melo: Jason Collins Showed ‘Big Balls’ By Coming Out

“It takes big balls to do that, especially [in] the society that we live in, knowing that everybody gonna have something to say,” Anthony said Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Celtics at Madison Square Garden.

“So for him to step up to the plate and do that, I’m pretty sure that that opened the floodgates for a lot of other people.”
