Another Reason to Respect AI

>> Thursday

Most of you know that I'm a huge Allen Iverson apologist. I love the guy, I think he's an electrifying talent and one of the toughest sons of bitches to ever play in the NBA. He does run his mouth sometimes, but unless you're old, white and crotchety, you realize he's just being himself and ain't tonin' it down for nobody.

This recent story is just another reason to love the guy. He's apparently going to pay for the funeral of a kid who was killed because he refused to give up his #3 Iverson jersey. First off, that's unconscionable but sadly not that surprising in our society. Second, Iverson should be praised for doing a classy move on this and is making a nice gesture in an obviously horrible situation. Seriously, the guy deserves your respect, old, angry white America.

*Hattip Deadspin.

Classy move by AI. Not too bright a move by the kid, RIP.

I saw that on Deadspin and almost commented on it myself also. The man is awesome--or at least no more flawed than the rest of us, and certainly no more flawed than those who've looked down their noses at him through the years.

I know it's kind of running joke how I have this big, huge soft spot for brash, uncompromising, shady-type athletes, but I just love how guys like AI are constantly challenging us to look deeper into a person, beyond the superficial dissimilarities to ourselves.

Yeah, I know that sounds touchy-feely Catholic-school cornball, but it's true.
