Magic Johnson isn’t the only NBA Hall of Famer with a gay son.

Detroit Pistons’ legend Isiah Thomas‘ son Zeke Thomas revealed in OUT Magazine that he came out in 2008.

He told the magazine:

“I came out in 2008, my sophomore year at college. My parents like to say they always knew I was gay. I came out to them, and they were very accepting. I always knew they would be accepting. Growing up, I had gay uncles, like every kid in America. I never was so scared that my parents were going to shun or disown me—the horror stories you hear. I was just nervous about, “Are my friends gonna accept me?” because I was a jock kid, so to speak, with an athlete father.”

Zeke, who works as a DJ, will be one of the official DJ’s featured during the 2014 NBA All-Star game in New Orleans.
