This is What Jason Collins and Jason Segel Looked Like As High School Teammates
You may have heard that Jason Collins, who has played for six teams in his 12-year NBA career, came out this morning. You may have also heard that, among other things, he played on the same high school basketball team as actor / writer / puppeteer Jason Segel. But you probably haven’t seen those two playing basketball together, because this pairing occurred in the years before everything was available at all times forever on the Internet, making a picture hard to procure.
Enter the communications department at Harvard-Westlake High School in Los Angeles, which kindly dug a team photo out of the archives. That’s Segel (nicknamed “Dr. Dunk”), Jarron Collins and Jason anchoring the back row and front court of a 1995-1996 HW squad that stood out then and certainly stands out now.
