NBA ad is wrong: reader

Thanks to Allen for heads up: his message.

Have you seen the NBA ad playing on TV that shows a rookie trying to board
the team bus and being forced by a senior player to ride in the luggage
compartment under the bus?  I just saw it during halftime on Monday Night
Football.  I would think (hope?) the NBA would have more sense than that,
but I guess not :-(  I tried to find an online video you could watch, but no
luck.
