Allen Iverson's Takes Indefinite Leave To Care For Ailing Daughter

 

Allen Iverson’s career has been put on hold indefinitely due to ongoing issues with his daughter’s health.

In a statement, the Sixers confirmed that Iverson has been given a leave from the team indefinitely to deal with a personal issue related to the health of his young daughter.

“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,” team president and general manager Ed Stefanski states.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Sixers’ coach Eddie Jordan addressed the team on Sunday (February 21), telling players that there was a chance Iverson would not return to the team.

Iverson missed five games and the 2010 All-Star Game in which he was voted to start in earlier this month to deal with his daughter’s health problems.

At press time, the timeframe of A.I.’s absence as well as the problem ailing his 4-year-old daughter Messiah has not been disclosed.

We are hoping for the best for A.I. and his family during this trying time and will continue to keep you updated as the story develops.

    I HOPE ALL IS WELL FOR ALLEN IVERSON’S DAUGHTER

    SHE COULD USE SOME HYSSOP TEA sold in healthfood stores

    IT IS VERY GOOD FOR MANY AILMENTS ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN

    IF SHE IS RELUCTANT MAKE ENOUGH FOR MORE THAN 1 PERSON AND DRINK A CUP OR HAVE A TOAST (IT IS BENEFICIAL EVEN TO SOMEONE WELL) WITH HER. IF SHE HAS A FAVORITE TEA SET PUT IT IN IT… (when kids are sick they can drink it by spoonfuls and start to feel better)

    I PRAY SHE IS BETTER

    The fact that Iverson even knows his daughter is sick puts him ahead of many of professional athletes who breed children like rabbits and then think a support check constitutes fatherhood. If Iverson is willing to put his family ahead of his contract, that says a lot about the degree to which he has matured as a person, and I commend him for it.

    I love this guy, he has a big heart so of course his family will come first. He is a fighter and I’m sure that rubs off on his daughter so yes we will continue to pray for her health that she will be healed..
