Michael Vick Gets A Hand From Allen Iverson

Michael Vick is getting some advice from Allen Iverson on how to handle his legal Iversontroubles. The NBA superstar is telling the football superstar to “keep his head up.” The guard for the Denver Nuggets spoke at halftime during a celebrity flag-football game he hosted as part of his Allen Iverson Summer Classic Weekend. Iverson says he expected criticism directed toward Vick, a fellow Virginian, who faces charges of sponsoring a dog fighting ring. Iverson has been part of several high-profile cases and says athletes get more attention than average people. The former Georgetown star is urging the former Virginia Tech star to make sure he weighs who his friends really are. Vick is scheduled to be arraigned on the charge in Richmond on Thursday.

  11. TC2 says:

    I completely support Michael Vick and hope that he comes back and shows the world that he is still the #1 QB. I hope that all of the people hating on Vick will open their eyes and look at their sin filled black hearts before they cast stones at Vick. Allen “The Answer” Iverson is 100% right in what he said. Just keep your head up Michael and leave the past behind you!

  16. Kim Jackson says:

    Ookie, Hang in there, you are the best in the game. I agree with Iverson, be careful who your friends are. You both are my favorite peolpe. You both came along way, as far as being poor and then becomming famous. Keep your head up people in this world are doing worst things to humans and they don’t even go to jail. Keep God first and you will get through. PEACE

  17. Seti says:

    Yes, people have done a lot worse! Let us not forget when dogs were used to attack poor black kids in the sixties. Uh, remember that? What happened to those dogs? What happened to the assholes that used them? Then you all wanna say Mike Vick is the worst person in the world? No, you need to check your head because you’re the ones who are screwed up! Why doesn’t the fur garment industry get as much bad press as Michael Vick? All PETA does is run adds with naked women. Where is the bad press? What about the hunters who used high powered rifles to put a bullet through the skull of deer? Or hang deer heads on their walls? How dare you mention Mike Vick’s name in ridicule! You are hypocrits! Robert Blake (the actor that played Beretta) killed his wife and was acquitted. Where was his bad press? Think before you speak you assholes!

    all u people who support MICHAEL VICK im with u keep your head up,hope your trail go well,all u people who hate mike screw you

  20. I think its a shame that there’s people out the who support this guy. First of all, he’s not a kid, he’s a 27 year old man. He was doing this for 5+ years plus the water bottle incident, middle finger incident and the Herpes. I forgot to mention timely lying to the FBI and his lowlife-loser little brother.

    Open your eyes!!!! Come on Ya’ll

  21. disappointed says:

    Let me begin by saying this is not about Michael Vick although I believe that the sentence he received was rather harsh.
    This is about the attire he wore at his sentencing. He was dressed in an outfit similar to that chain gangs wore during the 19th and 20th centuries. If my grandparents were alive and witnessed his attire they would they would have been alarmed and saddened by Vick’s attire. His attire was a reminder of the abuses some family members and friends experienced when they worked on chain gangs. As a child I often quietyly listened as they and neighbors discussed the abuses often suffered by those who worked on chain gangs.

    A chain gang was a group of prisoners chained together to perform physically challenging labor such as chopping stones often along a highway. Single ankle shackles with a short length of chain attached to a length of chains known as leg irons. Some of the chains weighed 20 pounds. The outfit Vick wore was similar to the outfit worn by individuals who worked on chain gangs.

    Although what a person wears to court is the judge’s decison, I queston his decision requiring Vick to wear atire similar to that worn by individuals as they wonked on chain gangs. What was his motive? I question his lack of sensitivity. Was he attempting to send a silent message? I question the attire the attire Vick was asked to wear. Whenever Vick is mentioned on TV, articles found in newspapers he is shown wearing that outfit. When Vick appeared in court he wore attite similar to those worn by individuals who worked on chain gangs. That evening , some individuals who attended the game wore outfits similar to that worn by Vick. What more can I say.

    the bible tell you that dogs are carnivorous,blood-eating,dangerous, and unclean. have you notice that people put dogs before human, where are you when children are being rape by the mens, where are you when a child go missing, where are you when a child is murder and they find the person that kill the child i dont see you in court on the streets walking with a sign. you should be ashame of yourself pointing finger at vicks. they kill dogs everyday in the kennel where are you. i have a neighbor that take greyhounds in here home because when they get through racing and the dog is unable to win they take the dogs to the woods and let them go and sometimes shot and kill them where are you, oh my bag they are white people doing the killing. what about the white man in orlando had a horse and starve the horse and the horse couldn’t stand anymore and he ask a guy doing demolishing to dig a hole and he put the horse in the whole and wanted the guy to cover the horse and they guy call the police and nothing was done where were you so put up or shut up.

  23. Dunkadelic Legend says:

    Michael Vick like Allen Iverson represent the hip-hop culture influence in sports. Most of American society has a hate for the culture. Iverson has been the poster-child for the basketball and hip-hop culture fusion of the past 23 years that is now being called The “Dunkadelic-Era” In America, 1984-Present. Vick has been called the “Allen Iverson of the NFL.” When you make millions and you wear the badge of urban culture on your sleeve you become Public Enemy #1. Mike Vick good luck to you my man, and do as A.I. says and what Tupac rapped about “Keep Ya Head Up.”

  24. ray says:

    these people moaning and crying about dogs are ridiculous – and ill bet most of them eat meat every day! Dont THOSE animals suffer too? lonely neurotic people with no human friends who have to use dogs as substitute people – THESE are the ones who hate mr vick!
    He doesnt deserve any of this – its good people like allen iverson can stand up for him!

  25. Lequasia says:

    YOU DON’T NEED 2 WORRY CUZ WE ALL KNOW DAT IS BULL AND IM ONLY 12 AND IT IS EASY 2 SEE. I KILL DOGS SOMETIMES BUT NOT PURPOSELY, I JUST CAN’T HANDLE THE RESPONSIBILITY. I LOVE YOU AND STAY STRONG BABE.

  26. Fuck White People says:

    I just HATE them racist crackers. You want to know if this was racisim involved? the answer is yes. you want proof. Look no further Than Roger Clemens. He Blatantly Lied on Capital Hill. Where is his Jail time. Where is it White america? Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Where are their Jail Time. Britney is in the news every week. all she did was lose custody of her kids. if she was black she would be right in jail. Look at Lil Kim. She Lied Like Clemens Did and went right to jail. where is Rocket’s Jail time. so don’t talk about Racism. Black people still get shot by police when we unarmed not once but 40 times.
    White America will always fear the black man and it’s not fair and not right. But only GOD will judge.
    oh, and don’t forget AI was charged as an ADULT at 17 years old for throwing a chair.

  27. Dave says:

    Having been with Iverson over the last 10 years as he hosted the Allen Iverson Celebrity Summer Classic, he always has a good word to say about everyone. As for his comment about atheletes, he is correct. His annual event receives little, if any, attention in the media other than the radio stations. The Washington Post appears to ignore the charity event as if it never happened – even though a ton of celebrities volunteer their time to participate, including Nelly, Judge Hatcher, Mo’Nique, Carmelo Anthony, Larry Johnson, Mike Brooks, and many others. But if Iverson came into town and got a DUI, he would be front page news. Best of luck to Michael Vick. The kids at the Boys and Girls Club in Newport News will be forever grateful for the autographed footballs and gift cards, team jerseys, football camps, and for inspiring them to succeed in life.

  28. seth says:

    Its not fair to michael vick that he got jail time. I mean donte stallworth killed someone, and got 30 days in jail, vick was fighting animals, i hope they both come back as the new faces of the nfl. Just think if you kill a human or a animal, u only get 30 days to 2 years in jail, thats pretty cool to be a roll model
