I'm not much of an NBA fan, but I have always liked the Suns' Steve Nash (The Genuine Point Guard, April 12). It is refreshing to read about professional athletes who are much more than their stats and salaries. Nash is both articulate and intelligent, and he speaks with conviction. It is rare today to hear athletes express their understanding of global and political issues.
SI should not have allowed Nash, who is not a U.S. citizen but gets the privileges of this great country and a fabulous income from the NBA, to lecture Americans about U.S. war involvement, education and health care. Write about sports or start a political magazine.

While Tiger Woods has clearly engaged in wrongdoing (Truth or Consequences, April 12), I do find it curious how overwhelmingly he is being vilified, while John Daly, a golfer with a long list of transgressions that includes quitting in the middle of rounds, probations, suspensions and various stints in rehab, is supported by fans and media alike.

The story that was chronicled by S.L. Price has nothing to do with golf and everything to do with Tiger Woods's being a brand. He became bigger than the game. That has brought him fame and now, more fittingly, infamy.
