I’m all about understanding that Christ suffered and died for our sins. I’m also all about praying through our own suffering to bring us closer to Jesus. But when you equate a multi-millionaire athlete’s injuries with a crown of thorns, it might be a bit of overkill.
At least one Chicago artists seems to think it’s accurate though, according to Deadspin. This is a town seriously jonesing for an NBA Championship. I mean, they’re actually leaving crutches and flowers like he’s dead or something. Or maybe they’re thinking of their own hopes and dreams of an NBA Champiosnhip returning to Chicago.
Hmm. Maybe they should move to Cleveland.
