Chat with John Amaechi
Amaechi, the first pro basketball player to openly identify himself as gay, played center at Penn State and spent five years in the NBA with Utah, Orlando and Cleveland. After retiring from pro basketball in 2003, Amaechi became a television personality in his native Britain and helped fund the Amaechi Basketball Center in Manchester.
In "Man In The Middle", to be published by ESPN Books on February 20, Amaechi speaks candidly about his time in the NBA, his relationships with players and coaches and the homophobic atmospheres he encountered while playing.
