We just fell in love with Mark Cuban all over again!
With all the buzz about Magic Johnson's 20-year-old son EJ coming out as a proud gay man, the Dallas Mavericks owner is happy that the basketball legend supports his boy 100%, and he also admitted that he would love if there was a gay athlete on his team.
"There will be someone who comes out, it'll be a great moment for sports. I would be honored if he was on my team. I think things have changed significantly and that the players would accept him. I don't think there's any question that even though all professional sports have had their homophobics… missteps along the way that it's a new era a new generation and the player would be accepted."
He also notes that if someone wanted to come out, he hopes that they would come to him because being gay isn't a big deal.
And we totally agree with him!!!
Bravo Mark, BRAVO!
