Paul Pierce's great quote on Jason Collins joining the Nets

Via ESPN New York:

"In a society we live in, this was going to happen eventually. This is the normal. He is a guy who is going to open the door for athletes. Maybe not just in America but all over the world, the sports world. That’s going to be key. It doesn’t matter your race, your gender, your sexuality, or any of that. It’s about being part of a team. It’s about caring for one another. That’s all that matters at the end of the day."

Well said Paul.  Former Celtics doing Boston proud.
