Gay NBA Player’s Twin Brother Gets ‘I’m The Straight One’ T-shirt From Jimmy Kimmel

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel invited recently self-outed gay NBA player Jason Collins on his program Wednesday evening along with twin brother Jarron.

At the end of the interview, Kimmel gave Jarron an “I’m The Straight One” t-shirt.

As the interview neared its conclusion, Jason commented about how he loves to crack jokes.

“You could do a lot of great stuff,” said Kimmel.

“Oh yeah, I've got material waiting,” Jason replied.

“We're going to start in the shower and we’re going to work from there,” joked Kimmel. As the brothers and the audience laughed, Kimmel added, “Oh, this is going to be fantastic.”

“Right before the season starts, I’ll come back to you,” Jason responded. “You’ll give me some good ones.”

“I'm going to be gay with you on this thing,” Kimmel added. “We are going to handle this together.”

“Since you are identical twins,” continued Kimmel, “and, you know, this, you know, it's a little odd, I think, this situation that you're in, I have a gift for Jarron actually.”

Kimmel then pulled out a t-shirt that read “I’m The Straight One.”

“It’ll save me a lot of time,” Jarron joked.
