Brooklyn Nets' Jason Collins meets the family of Matthew Shepard
Recently signed Brooklyn Nets player Jason Collins met with the family of slain college student Matthew Shepard, who Collins has honored every game since last season by wearing the number 98 - the year that Shepard was killed.
Collins gave Shepard's parents and brother signed jerseys after the Nets headed to Denver during Collins's first week back in the NBA since coming out as gay.
And yes, the Nets beat the Denver Nuggets 112-89 Thursday night with Collins in the game.
