President Obama Calls in Favor to Jay Z; Brooklyn Nets Sign Openly Gay Jason Collins

The Brooklyn Nets signed 35-year-old bench rider Jason Collins to a 10-day contract on Sunday. According to sources, President Obama called in a favor to his good friend, minority team owner and rapper Jay Z.

Normally, this type of signing wouldn’t register a blip in the news. But Collins recently announced he is a homosexual — after dating a woman for 8 years. Now he is celebrated for his sexual proclivities — not for his subpar basketball average of 1.1 points per game.

Jason Collins signs contract

Even the Nets’ explanation of why they signed Collins reeked of homosexual undertones.

“The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision,” Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. “We needed to increase our depth inside, and with his experience and size, we felt he was the right choice for a 10-day contract.”

Collins entered Sunday’s game against the LA Lakers at 10:28 in the 2nd quarter to a smattering of applause from the crowd. And since he was only on the floor for show, his play did not impact the game, which the Nets won 108-102.

Jason Collins comment

You still don’t believe Collins’ signing was a PR stunt? Would the Nets normally tweet out a photo of a scrub signing a contract?

Meanwhile, Monica Brown’s husband, Shannon Brown, an excellent point guard, will soon be a free agent if the Spurs don’t re-sign him to a regular season contract. Brown signed two 10-day contracts with the San Antonio Spurs last month. But his signing went largely unnoticed by the news media. There were no headlines, no hype, and no photos of Brown signing his contract.

The obvious message to the youth is, if you live an unhealthy sexual lifestyle you will be celebrated and held aloft as a pillar of society.

But the Nets’ social experiment may soon backfire on them. If they don’t sign Collins to a regular season contract they will be accused of caving in to homophobic pressure.

      I hear he’s trash and folks not liking him as a player had nothing to do with his sexuality. Being same sex oriented and playing me n my dearest Trey Songz nuptials, I can respect that. Guys were on twitter clownin his game, not his sexuality.

      How much is he getting paid for 10 days work? I know it’s in the six figures.

      The President can’t call Jay Z because ole buddy holds no weight when it comes to the team..PR as it may be, the truth is Jason is a center so his points don’t need to be up there with the rest of em. He’s not a scorer. He’s not the best at what he does but lets be real Sandra, Shannon ain’t that damn good either. Compared to Parker, Duncan n Ginobili, Shannon can sit on the bench.

      He’ll be good on the Lakers though, he played well with them.

      And with an ass like that, Shannon should be working. Monica’s so lucky I swear. I saw a clip of Shannon dropping them boxers and that nice bright booty was just there, firm and all.

      In life, the squeakiest wheel gets the oil. We all know talent alone will not get Shannon another contract. What’s with these 10 day contracts when many of these teams have bench warmers on lock for years?

      Who we need to rally to 2 get Shannon some attn? The hawks waived some guy this weekend too. He’s so foregettable that I don’t care to even google. The tweets were saying he spent more time on social media instead of perfecting his craft. He went to the D-league.

      Sandra, who has Shannon pissed off? You know it all starts with your relationships.

      Jay Z definitely doesn’t own any stake in that franchise anymore. It’s against league rules to own stake in a franchise and be a league agent. Source wrong.
