Mark Cuban Expects an Openly Gay NBA Player Within 3-5 Years

by December 19, 2011

During a typically bizarre interview with the folks over at TMZ, Mark Cuban broached a number of subjects, including the possibility of a woman coaching NBA dudes, and the chances that an active player comes out of the closet. From USA Today: “Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is a lot of things. Boring is never one of the them. Interviewed by TMZ, he said NBA players want to win so if they had confidence in a woman coach ‘they would go to war with her.’ He also believes there will be an openly gay NBA player in 3-5 years and that it will be ‘more of a media sensation….than a player issue.'”
