NBA makes Jason Collins' Brooklyn Nets jersey available

Due to popular demand, the NBA has made openly gay Jason Collins' Brooklyn Nets jersey available at their online store.


The jerseys were available at and the NBA Store in Manhattan after the league received hundreds of inquiries both online and at the store, the spokesman said.

Collins signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, becoming the first active openly gay player in league history.

The Nets can give Collins a second 10-day deal once the first one expires.

He will wear No. 98 -- starting Wednesday night at Portland -- in honor of Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming who was tortured, beaten and murdered in 1998 in an anti-gay hate crime.

For $70, you, too, can have Jason Collins' jersey. Check it out here.
