Three years ago, a teenager in Philadelphia was shot in the back after refusing to 'give up' his Allen Iverson jersey. The shooting left him paralyzed, in a wheelchair, and eventually on a ventilator. Last week, the ventilator failed, and the now 22-year old suffered irreparable brain damage. The family chose to take him off it. On Tuesday morning, he died and Allen Iverson has agreed to pay for the funeral expenses. The family invited Iverson to the funeral, but it conflicts with the Sixers matchup with Milaukee. He will be buried in none other than an Allen Iverson Jersey.
This is really sad to hear. You have serious issues to shoot someone over a jersey. How about you rob somebody for money and then buy a brand new one. People don't think.
