Jason Collins's coming out was exciting for Jack Davis, but it's also exciting for Nike. The LGBT community's buying power is reportedly worth almost $800 million.

Nike sponsors Collins, and last June, the company held its first ever LGBT sports summit. That means this news could be a slam dunk for Nike.
