Allen Iverson Leaves 76ers To Take Care of Sick Daughter
Allen Iverson, the Philadelphia 76ers guard is leaving the game for several games to take care of his ailing 4 year-old daughter Messiah. Iverson just returned from missing five games after he withdrew from the All-Star Game because her undiagnosed sickness.
“At this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of the Sixers, Allen and his family that he be allowed to deal with a very serious issue that is far greater than the game of basketball.”
We applaud the Sixers President for having a heart and letting Iverson take care of his family. He’s not just a basketball player but a dad too. Iverson plans to be out for the next three games but it could be indefinite. We hope Messiah recovers from her illness soon.
