POLITICAL BASKETBALL: The venerable consumer

POLITICAL BASKETBALL: The venerable consumer advocate Ralph Nader was so upset about the unfair officiating in Game 6 of the L.A. Lakers-Sacramento Kings series that he has written a letter to NBA Commissioner David Stern. Now I'm not the world's biggest fan of Nader (I certainly didn't even consider voting for him in the 2000 election), but I must say I'd sort of like it if he re-invented himself as an advocate for the common sports fan- God knows in this case his message would reach a lot more people than it did in the election, especially if there's a baseball strike this summer. I can't wait to see Selig and Nader go head-to-head on Larry King Live...
