A new image of NBA star Nick Young leaked online, which shows the former NBA player holding hands with a man.

And speculation is exploding online that Nick may soon come out of the closet, as a gay man.

If Nick does come out, he will be the highest profile athlete in team sports to have ever come out as gay.
