I'm glad that it was mentioned that Collins wasn't a terrible player. He's played more than DOUBLE the average career length of an NBA player. You can't do that and be bad at basketball.
He was on the Celtics for the first half of this past season and he played well. I wish he got more time because they lacked an inside presence. He's a veteran who bangs inside, gets boards, takes charges, and doesn't make bonehead plays. He's definitely still valuable to a significant amount of teams.
I'm surprised the response has been so positive to his announcement, and it will undoubtedly help future gay athletes and the gay community... But it's absurd what some people still think. I literally saw someone ask if Jason's twin brother was gay because they were twins. Holy fuck.
Hmm, interesting - so do you think it was a serious episode because Marc Maron's IFC promoter people thought that'd be a better way to get the message out?
I bet it's that. Well, something like IFC put the idea out and Scott thought it would be a cool idea to out-Maron Maron. That turns the episode premise into a bit, lets Scott host differently, and gets the plug job done. I don't think it was maliciously done or anything, but a way to cross promote and hopefully bump up viewership a bit.
Think about it though, the bonus eps that I remember off the top of my head were Kashian plugging her book and Garland plugging his new podcast on the network. Those plugs seemed to permeate the episode a lot more than just a plug section at the end.
