THE DIVISION BELLE? SPIKE TRIES TO DO RIGHT THING IN PROFILE

     ALBERT BELLE was featured on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant
Gumbel," in a piece directed by SPIKE LEE.  Indians GM JOHN HART:
"Albert has an image problem with the national media.  Everything
that Albert does is blown up.  I think Albert also has an image
problem within the game of baseball. ... In this era of political
correctness, Albert is not baseball politically correct and it
doesn't wash real well."  Belle on his distrust of people,
including the media: "If I don't trust someone, I'm definitely
not going to open up and talk to them."  In speaking on Belle
afterward, Lee indicated they didn't discuss Belle's incident
with HANNAH STORM in the World Series since Storm would not
address this issue on camera (HBO, 9/11).
