    prayers, for someone who could have easily killed someone?

    he is irresponsible and does not deserve any prayers?

    he needs psychatric help....

    I just will never understand how these guys who are millionaires can't get a cab or have someone drive them when they're drinking. I sure hope Vin can work out his issues. Perhaps this will be the kick in the butt that gets him straightened up.

    I wonder the same. If that's me, I'm renting a damned limo every time I go out. Why the hell not?

    Whether you're the most successful, selfless, upstanding citizen, or the most pitiful person on earth, everyone can use some prayers.

    Agreed, but you don't have to if you don't want to. I was just bringing it to ya'lls attention.

    Yes, it's too bad. And it is what concerns me about Sean Williams - the inability to get straight - and stay straight.

    Baker needs two people, Luke and Vin Baker.

    Somehow, I'm not nearly as broken up about this as you seem to be, Aggie.

    I can't think of a person more in need of prayers, than someone who fits those conditions you mentioned.

    The way I understand prayers they aren't said as a reward for people who've lived upstanding lives.

    Anyway, prayers and psychiatric help aren't mutually exclusive. He could probably use both.

    aww man! damn it Vin. i had such high hopes for him too when he first entered the league; i think i even have his rookie card lying around somewhere; or might've used it as a coaster

    When Vin was with Milwaukee, I thought he was going to be a perennial all-star. It's sad.

    Nobody is perfect and prayers are for all good or bad. Hope you can beat the beast some day Vin.

    I think that Vin Baker for Shawn Kemp trade must have been cursed or something. Neither player has been close to the player he was before the trade.

    Like others have mentioned, he is the kind of person who needs prayers the most.

    I'm not making any judgements on him. But he has enough money to go to one of those rehab facilities for rich people. those things seem nice.

    This isn't sad news, this is news about a drunk who got behind the wheel.
