I’m not from NY but in my 4yrs w/ the team I got a true sense of the love & respect for Big Mase. What a special personality & player.
Phil Jackson coached against Mase in Bulls wars and said in statement "nobody fiercer." Touché

Knicks GM Steve Mills on Mason: http://t.co/X3jyVzwFML
Phil on Anthony Mason 1966-2015 http://t.co/h8dzx9ZSqI”
Ewing continued: "I will remember him for his strength, determination & perseverance. My thoughts are with his family. May he rest in peace"
Ewing continued:.."Mase came to play every night and was always ready to go to battle with me every time we stepped on the court together...
Patrick Ewing: "My heart is heavy after learning we lost Anthony Mason last night. We were teammates on the Knicks for five great seasons..
Now this is a starting 5. "We were either gonna win the game or win the fight." RIP Anthony Mason. http://t.co/WWKo6wL7bW
Imagine the toughness of a starting five of Ewing, Oakley, Mason, Starks and Harper. They didn't take recovery days...they gave them.
JVG said Paul Silas coached the Knicks summer league team with Mason, Starks & Greg Anthony and it was a "total wipe out. Total domination."
Pat Riley and Anthony Mason came together at the perfect time. Two self-made, stubborn fighters who gave the 90's Knicks an edge.
Covering those Knicks teams in the 90's, the stars were Ewing and Riley - but Mason and Starks were the perfect hungry complements.
Charles Oakley told me that Anthony Mason helped create the identity of the 90's Knicks. "He was as tough as they come," Oakley said.
Jeff Van Gundy again told the story of the first practice when Mason and Xavier McDaniel got into a fight. "It set the tone for the season."
Derek Harper also said of Anthony Mason's passing: "I tried to reach out to him this week to tell him I love him. It's incredibly sad."
Thank God for today
Former Knick Derek Harper says that "the beauty of Anthony Mason is that he worked himself into becoming an NBA player and an All Star."
My parents probably never would've let me, but I kinda wish I'd gotten a Mase haircut when I was younger. Woulda been the coolest kid ever.
Sad day for the Knicks and their fans. Anthony Mason has passed at the age of 48.
It's comforting 2 know wish of Mason, unable 2 speak, was granted. He wanted 2 hear f Riley. Pat called last week, I'm told. Did all talking
Can you imagine if Andrea Bargnani played with 1/4 of spitfire Anthony Mason brought to the basketball court? Neither can I.
Well, forget that. Westbrook is on such a roll he couldn't even miss on purpose.
Anyone else be stunned if Westbrook doesn't put back his own intentional miss to tie it at this point?
Knicks are 1-0 with Andrea Bargnani in the starting lineup.
The Knicks won their first game of the season without Carmelo Anthony tonight. They were 0-16 minus Melo.
Knicks bust an eight-gm losing streak to beat Pistons, 121-115. With the win, NY earns its first win without Carmelo. Now 1-16 in those gms.
The Knicks are 1-0 the day after llamas go on the loose.
Can't lose them all - but that's a gutty effort by a very shorthanded Knicks team against a Detroit team that needed this game.
It's official. This game will never end.
Gms like these have to be cool for Amundson. Spend your entire career trying to convince folks you belong, then go out & put up big numbers.
Shane Larkin with a huge floater & 1 after Langston fouled out on a questionable charge. Shane 3-point play. Up 4 28 seconds left.
Amundson w/ 17 points, 14 rebounds, & 3 blocks tonight.
Thank god it’s Beach Night at the Palace.
Those last 2 RTs are why I'm fine with Knicks not going after Monroe this offseason.
Reggie Jackson now 5-of-23 from the floor.
It's getting rough here at the Palace. Knicks lead in overtime, 103-101. Bargnani just flipped Reggie Jackson.
Bargnani’s highest point total of the season (25) & most since Jan. 22, 2014 against the Sixers.
Reggie Jackson misses potential game-sealer and Langston Galloway drills a high-arcing 3-pointer for the tie with 6.3 seconds left. 95-95.
I think Shved was going for the space hook.
Can't stop watching that Vine. Dude just shot the equivalent of a foul ball, somehow.
Hardaway Jr. back in the game after receiving 4 stitches on his left eyebrow.
And then hits a floater and potential and-1.
Reggie Jackson with a rough night. 2-of-13 from the floor and 1-of-4 behind the arc for DET.
Shump has done just fine in Cleveland. Even if he didn't, what does saying "good riddance" every other day do for you? Let it go.
Raptors, in a classic trap-game situation, get caught looking ahead to Knicks on Saturday, down 98-57 to Warriors after three.
IOC approves 2020 Tokyo Olympic basketball tournament moving to Saitama Super Arena, site of last U.S. men loss in 2006 world semis.
Bargnani blocks Greg Monroe here early in the third. That doesn't fit the narrative.
Lmao. I tweet "Dallas is the worst city of all-time," and immediately four people from NJ tweet back like, "Naaaah...."
Dallas is the worst city of all-time.
So, it’s Beach Party night at the Pistons game. It’s 13 degrees in Detroit. It’s February 27th.
Fisher and Reggie http://t.co/KMPZufp4EJ
Fisher said the front office may look to add another player with the open roster spot depending on the result of Calderon's test.
Calderon getting MRI tomorrow. If out awhile will then use their open roster spot.
No Larkin in starting lineup. Langston, Tim and Cle.
