Jason Collins also dubbed as the openly gay NBA player appeared on Wednesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” alongside his twin brother Jarron Collins.
During the interview, the twins discuss the support he has received from his NBA family, how Jason come out to his brother and even the red flags Jarron didn’t pick up on.
“We don’t have a serious tone to our conversations, and I was like, Jarron, I need to talk to you about something serious,” said Jason, a center with the NBA’s Washington Wizards.
Added Jarron, a retired professional basketball player: “He was very direct about it. He said, ‘Jarron, I’m gay.’ And I heard it, but I didn’t quite register it. And I went about asking some of the dumbest questions you could possibly ask to someone who just told you that they’re gay.”
The late night host Jimmy also decided to give Jarron a nice memorabilia to help cut down on some confusion between him and his identical brother. He gave Jarron a black t-shirt saying, “I am the straight one.” Good times!
