Sheryl Swoopes

WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes was one of the first stars to be signed into the league when it was created.  The three time MVP made her sexuality public in an exclusive interview with ESPN back in 2005. "Discovering I'm gay just sort of happened much later in life," she said. "Being intimate with [Alisa] or any other woman never entered my mind. At the same time, I'm a firm believer that when you fall in love with somebody, you can't control that."
