NBA player Kenneth Faried discusses having two moms, joins Athlete Ally

[quote]Faried, a New Jersey native nicknamed the "Manimal", is a 23 year-old star for the Denver Nuggets who played at Morehead State University in Kentucky. Earlier this season, Faried won the Player of the Week award and set a new career high with 20 rebounds in a game against the Miami Heat. Last week, Faried was selected to take part in the Sprite Slam Dunk competition during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night in Houston on Febuary 16th and he will also be participating in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. The proud son of two lesbian moms, Faried stood up in January to support marriage equality with a PSA geared toward legislation in Colorado. [quote]"Becoming an Athlete Ally gives me the opportunity to spread a message of inclusiveness throughout the NBA and our country. I have two moms and I love them both very much. I respect, honor and support them in every way. The bond I have with them has made me realize that I want all members of the LGBT community - whether they are parents, players, coaches or fans - to feel welcome in the NBA and in all of our communities," said Faried.
