No player in NBA history comes close to Carter in terms of the wow factor. This generation is lucky to have seen him play—with or without a ring.

The Word on Woods
Give Selena Roberts a double eagle for her profound analysis of Tiger's return to the Masters (POINT AFTER, April 19). The insight of Joslyn James, the 32-year-old stripper with whom Tiger had a three-year affair, was illuminating. "He is whatever he needs to be in the moment," she said. If any other married golfer had affairs with multiple porn stars, the media would ruin him. But they bought and sold the new image of Tiger. Roberts aptly summed up his strategy for rebuilding his reputation: "Just fake it."

I don't think this column was necessary. Tiger cheated on his wife. That is something that I do not respect, but in my opinion he does not owe the fans anything. I am rooting for Tiger to show the world that people can make mistakes (even big ones) but then make the most of their second chances.

Between your feature on the class of Phil Mickelson and his loving wife, Amy, and Roberts's brutal and all-too-accurate dissection of his rival's psyche, SI has delivered the most notable Tiger Slam yet.
