Cavaliers forward LeBron James moved into the top 20 on the NBA's all-time scoring list Thursday night against the Miami Heat. A first-quarter hook shot by James, 30, gave him 24,816 career points, passing longtime New York Knicks center Patrick Ewing. "It's an honor," James said. "When I was growing up, you see these guys playing and you just hope that one day you can [too]. I always had dreams about being able to play in the NBA, and seeing what Pat and those guys were doing in the '90s with that New York Knick team facing the Pacers or facing the Bulls, or whoever they were going against, they were very tough-minded, and he was the cornerstone of the whole thing."

Like many of Anthony Mason's former teammates, Patrick Ewing has plenty of Mase stories. "I don't think a lot of them can be put in the paper,” Ewing said with a chuckle on Wednesday. Over the next two days at the wake and funeral for Mason in New York, many family members, friends and former teammates will certainly share tales of the beloved former New York Knick with the intimidating scowl and muscular build of an NFL linebacker.

"Mase is very -- I am trying to think of the word … when you miss him and he thinks he should get the ball and he doesn't get it -- he is one of those guys that doesn't mince his words," Ewing said, chuckling again. "'Man, you missed me!' Or one of those things." The Knicks won an average of 54 games per season with Mason on their roster. It wasn't always a smooth ride, but Ewing will always look back fondly at having Mason by his side. "We played five years together," Ewing said. "It was one of the highlights of being with the Knicks. Those teams, we felt we had an opportunity or a chance to go real far. "It was great to share those moments with him," Ewing added. "It is sad to see him at that early age that he is not going to be with us anymore." ESPN.com

On Saturday afternoon, Beastie Boys member Ad-Rock tweeted about Mason’s death: “MASE!!! You are for surely missed. RIP.” Mason was not the only Knick of the Pat Riley era to inspire the Beasties’ rhymes. “Get It Together” contains the line “I got heart like John Starks,” while “Flute Loop” references the team’s 1993 Atlantic Division title with the somewhat hard-to-decipher lyric: “Lead my team to 60 wins like my man Pat Ewing.” New York Daily News

Work is what Ewing is focusing on these days. Instead of worrying about where and when his head-coaching opportunity will come — and, indeed, if it will — he’s concerned with getting the Hornets back on track. “I’m not even thinking about it or worrying about it,” Ewing said of his coveted job. “You know, I have a great opportunity here, working with a great guy in Steve, and we have a great coaching staff. “All I can do is just make sure that I’m ready for when that opportunity does come. I get advice from not only Steve but the Van Gundys and everybody who I’ve worked for and played for. But whenever that opportunity comes, I feel that I’m ready and that I’m going to be successful.” Boston Herald

Kauffman Sports Management Group has signed basketball hall of famer and current Charlotte Hornets associate head coach Patrick Ewing for coaching representation.

Falk last week called on the newly elected NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts to actively enforce that rule. Falk still represents Ewing for marketing work, which is allowed under NBPA rules. barrons.com
