Stephen has no problem admitting that another man is attractive.
Amaechi claims his choice to be a basketball player is different from his choice to be gay. Although to be gay and/or a basketball player usually includes bringing the rock to the hole, regardless. Instead, Amaechi says that biology determined certain attributes of his life, like his height and sexual orientation.
