AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Frank Garza's job handling jet fuel, kerosene and oil for Buckeye Pipeline in Michigan can be a potentially hazardous one, "but I've had 26 years without an incident or work-related injury," he said. Garza, 48, said his permanent job parallels the one he will tackle tomorrow night as the third man in the ring when Mike Tyson and Andrew Golota, known as two of boxing's dirtiest heavyweights, go after each other in a 10-round, non-title fight.

Saunders, who lost in the Eastern Conference finals in each of his three seasons with the Pistons, said he didn't expect to hear raucous cheers when he was announced Sunday night.

This column originally was going to be an observation about how the commissioners of each major professional sport were experiencing the worst of times. All faced present or brewing scandals, attacks on their own or their sport's integrity, fan outrage or indifference, and various combinations of them all. But in the past couple of days, one leader has excused himself from his colleagues' pity party. David Stern, you and the NBA are off the hook. And you will never be able to thank LeBron James enough for rescuing you. James is the name on everyone's lips and the athlete on everybody's mind.

Regarding New York Knicks forward Antonio Davis' decision to charge into the stands during a game in Chicago on Wednesday night because he believed a fan was threatening his wife and children - everyone did what they had to do. Davis certainly did. And so did NBA commissioner David Stern yesterday. Davis, a respected veteran, did what any right-thinking person would do. He put his family's safety above all other concerns. As president of the NBA players union, he surely knew he could be suspended for leaving the bench and going into the stands during a timeout, but he didn't care.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - It sounds like something out of the Yogi Berra book of quotations: Everybody is talking about how no one is interested in the NBA Finals. This is a series full of contradictions, and none is bigger than the one offered up by the fans and observers who have railed against the decline of the league and who are taking the San Antonio Spurs-Detroit Pistons Finals on a course for the second-lowest ratings in more than 20 years. Any NBA hater out there can quickly cite a list of reasons for his hatred as long as Ben Wallace's Afro and never passes up a chance to do so. And speaking of Wallace, there isn't a better example in the Finals, much less the entire league, of what the haters say the league desperately lacks.

IT HAS BEEN four days now, but it still doesn't make sense: "fans" in suburban Detroit so short-tempered in their mob-scene assault on NBA players. This wasn't about the Pistons-Pacers rivalry. This was anger, disgust, disrespect directed at the players. The action of so many fans was as criminal, if not more so, than that of the players. When the Auburn Hills police roll the ESPN videotape to examine evidence, "fans" will be under scrutiny. The fool in the Pistons jersey and the coward in the pink ball cap might find police warrants served on them.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - For the past two days, the Indiana Pacers answered questions about their offensive ineptitude with incredulous tones and confidence that bordered on cockiness. Ron Artest, who entered last night's Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals shooting 26.3 percent, even disputed somebody's assertion that he had struggled this series. This is the mind-set that the Pacers used to rack up the league's best regular-season record. This is the mind-set they took into Game 4 as Indiana wrested home-court advantage back from the Detroit Pistons with an 83-68 victory, tying the best-of-seven series at two games apiece.
