FILE- John Amaechi, the first British player to start in an NBA game, playfully covers a tee shirt that states "Amaechi Tea Co." at a news conference in Orlando, Fla. USA, in this file photo dated Tuesday Aug. 8, 2000. Amaechi became the first openly gay former NBA player with a landmark public statement in 2007, three years after retiring, but in a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Amaechi disclosed that he is in contact with gay English Premier League players to advise them about gay issues.
