    why would they name her Messiah, God is a jealous God. My mama named me King, not after the almighty King. I think that was a bad choice for a name. Look at my pic, aint i cute.

    Wow, I hate to hear that about A.I.’s child. Derek Fisher’s child went through a tough illness a few years ago. It just brings home the point that illness and disease don’t care if you’re rich and famous. I wish him and his family the best.

    On another note, I think the whole notion of putting his career on hiatus is a disingenuos ploy on AI’s part. The buzzards have been circling over his career for the past couple of seasons now. There may be a part of him that’s using this opportunity to exit the game of professional basketball quietly.

    Sending prayers to the almighty…

    But I did think the same thing when I saw her name. Isn’t that a little blasphemous? Oh well…

  • ohhhellllnoooo

    @TINY & TI KIDS PIC—–GOD IS NOT JEALOUS, THAT IS A NEGATIVE HUMAN TRAIT, WHICH IS ACTUALLY THE WORK OF THE DEVIL—DEVIL CREATES JEALOUSY AND GREED & HUMANS FALL FOR IT–NOT GOD–GOD IS PURE

    SMH @ THESE PEOPLE SAYING GOD IS JEALOUS–GO BACK TO CHURCH & REREAD THE BIBLE!

    @ohhhellllnoooo

    Perhaps you may reconsider your criticism of Tiny and T.I.

    Deut 5:9-10

    9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God AM A JEALOUS GOD, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and fourth generation of those who reject me,

    10 but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

  • marie II

    To A.I. and his wife stay strong! remember prayers go up Blessings come down. Hampton Va. got ur backs all day and night!

  • Please get Better! Rename the Child!

    My prayers go out to the family. I’m just shocked at naming the child after “The Messiah.” Some people are so arrogant that they do not care about blasphemy. No one is above God or acquire a name in the likeness thereof. I hope the child’s name is not a bad omen) smh
