It's only a matter of time before an active NBA player comes out as gay ... so says Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban who tells TMZ he would be honored if the player was a member of his team.

Cuban called in to "TMZ Live" moments ago to discuss how Magic Johnson's support for his gay son will impact professional sports.

Mark also acknowledges a current NBA player who was raised by 2 moms -- and tells us how he's helping to change the culture in the league.

Real men are secure in their masculinity I think homophobes are probably closeted gays. Why else would someone be so worried about if someone is straight or not!?! Who gives a f** k?

Statistically speaking, 10% of your team is already guy. Did god make a mistake when he made gay people? I don't think so.

If you love guys, you love guys. If not, you love girls. Choose.

One thing is for sure, there are still a ton of very brain challenged people who make themselves well know every time they comment on such stories! If you have some sort of issue with people that are different than yourself then it's really just your pathetic ass problem!

Pretty sure Reggie Miller's past his prime but he'd be my hunch for a gay player who never came out.. Whatever, if you're gay and playing pro sports, no matter what any owner says, you probably wanna keep your sexual pref to yourself.....most players aren't gonna be cool with an openly gay dude in the locker room. On the other hand , there are several openly gay women in every prof. Sport. But honestly, who watches the WNBA or the LPGA etc....Advice, keep your sexuality out of the game and just be the best you can be as a player

Who cares? Such a non-story. He'd be "honored". Give me a break. I'd be honored if he'd STFU.

Cuban implies that there are no gays in the NBA at present. What a fool he is.

I like Mark because he says what he thinks, it's costs him millions of dollars, but ..........so I believe him when he says this. Any other guy probably would be lying.
