Iverson Humed by Smith

09Mar10

I really hope that the details in this story aren’t true. Allen Iverson, always controversial, was an inspiration on the court, and one of the toughest players the league has seen. If this story is true, I hope Iverson can recover. But I can’t help but see Smith’s critique in a negative light, especially in light of Brit Hume’s appeal on behalf of Christianity to Tiger Woods:

His closest confidant asked the basketball world to pray for Allen Iverson, as if no one has all these years while seeing this train wreck coming.

He acted as if the former 76ers star hadn’t needed a significant dose of prayer, luck, and divine intervention until now.

Why does it have to be divinely inspired? Even if Smith isn’t advocating directly for Christianity, why is prayer the answer?
