Celtic center Jason Collins made history today as he became the first active NBA player to come out as gay.  Former player John Ameche came out a couple of years ago, but that was after he had retired from the NBA. Also, he's British, so that hardly counts.  34 year old Collins, however, is still active in the league. '

In honor of Jason Collins' courageous announcement, I've compiled a list of my top 15 NBA terms that sound gay.

1.) Man-to-Man

2.) Take it to the hole

3.) Reach-in foul

4.) back court violation

5.) Ball handling skills

6.) Groin pull

7.) Come from behind victory

8.) Palming the ball

9.) Swingman

10.) Interfering with the Rim

11.) In your face

12.) Swish

13.) Ball boy

14.) Pounding the hard wood

And my favorite gay-sounding basketball term....

15.) Behind the back dribble
