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.

Marc Berman

Phil Jackson coached against Mase in Bulls wars and said in statement "nobody fiercer." Touché

Ian Begley

#Knicks GM Steve Mills: "All of us here at the New York Knicks will remember Mase and cherish his legacy." http://t.co/JUMdXOYeIC

Ian Begley

#Knicks president Phil Jackson: "As a competitor, there was none fiercer than Anthony Mason....Rest in peace, Mase." http://t.co/QJqVN5DhI0

Frank Isola

Ewing continued: "I will remember him for his strength, determination & perseverance. My thoughts are with his family. May he rest in peace"

Frank Isola

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...

Frank Isola

Patrick Ewing: "My heart is heavy after learning we lost Anthony Mason last night. We were teammates on the Knicks for five great seasons..

Ian Begley

#Knicks great Patrick Ewing on Anthony Mason: "Mase came to play every night and was always ready to go to battle with me."

Frank Isola

Now this is a starting 5. "We were either gonna win the game or win the fight." RIP Anthony Mason. http://t.co/WWKo6wL7bW

Frank Isola

Imagine the toughness of a starting five of Ewing, Oakley, Mason, Starks and Harper. They didn't take recovery days...they gave them.

Frank Isola

JVG said Paul Silas coached the Knicks summer league team with Mason, Starks & Greg Anthony and it was a "total wipe out. Total domination."

Frank Isola

Pat Riley and Anthony Mason came together at the perfect time. Two self-made, stubborn fighters who gave the 90's Knicks an edge.

Steve Popper

Covering those Knicks teams in the 90's, the stars were Ewing and Riley - but Mason and Starks were the perfect hungry complements.

Frank Isola

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.

Tina Cervasio

Heartbreaking to hear about the passing of former #Knicks Anthony Mason. His son @YuNgMaseJr explains more here: http://t.co/ygC9ACriWz

Frank Isola

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."

Frank Isola

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."

Frank Isola

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."

Chris Herring

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.

Al Iannazzone

Sad day for the Knicks and their fans. Anthony Mason has passed at the age of 48.

Peter Vecsey

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.

Steve Popper

Oddest thing on @twitter - gotten about 6 posts to me that are clearly spammed but with a great J.R. Smith quote.

Brian Mahoney

Well, forget that. Westbrook is on such a roll he couldn't even miss on purpose.

Brian Mahoney

Anyone else be stunned if Westbrook doesn't put back his own intentional miss to tie it at this point?

Barbara Barker

Knicks get first win without Melo. Now 1-16 without him. #Knicks

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks won their first game of the season without Carmelo Anthony tonight. They were 0-16 minus Melo.

Steve Popper

Or... Is it possible the Pistons couldn't tell what color the uni's were? RT @Scott Cacciola: The Knicks are 1-0 day after llamas go on loose

Chris Herring

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.

Scott Cacciola

The Knicks are 1-0 the day after llamas go on the loose.

Steve Popper

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.

Barbara Barker

It's official. This game will never end.

Chris Herring

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.

Marc Berman

Shane Larkin with a huge floater & 1 after Langston fouled out on a questionable charge. Shane 3-point play. Up 4 28 seconds left.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin gets the bucket and the foul. He has played 35 mins in 1st game back from being sick. #Knicks lead 114-111.

Jonah Ballow

Amundson w/ 17 points, 14 rebounds, & 3 blocks tonight.

Jonah Ballow

Thank god it’s Beach Night at the Palace.

Jonah Ballow

Galloway, Hardaway Jr., Thomas, Amundson, Bargs for #Knicks

Chris Herring

Those last 2 RTs are why I'm fine with Knicks not going after Monroe this offseason.

Jonah Ballow

Reggie Jackson now 5-of-23 from the floor.

Steve Popper

Not Llamas? RT @Scott Cacciola: Toronto Raptors' stuffed goat giveaway = best giveaway (h/t @bohu131) http://t.co/Yzkowenz1X

Barbara Barker

It's getting rough here at the Palace. Knicks lead in overtime, 103-101. Bargnani just flipped Reggie Jackson.

Jonah Ballow

Bargnani’s highest point total of the season (25) & most since Jan. 22, 2014 against the Sixers.

Jonah Ballow

Galloway, Early, Thomas, Smith, Amundson on the floor for the #Knicks

Marc Berman

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.

Jonah Ballow

I think Shved was going for the space hook.

Chris Herring

Can't stop watching that Vine. Dude just shot the equivalent of a foul ball, somehow.

Jonah Ballow

Hardaway Jr. back in the game after receiving 4 stitches on his left eyebrow.

Jonah Ballow

And then hits a floater and potential and-1.

Jonah Ballow

Reggie Jackson with a rough night. 2-of-13 from the floor and 1-of-4 behind the arc for DET.

Tina Cervasio

Hardaway jr. Back on bench with big 'ol bandaid over stitches. #Knicks

Chris Herring

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.

Chris Herring

Y'all really gotta chill w the cherry picked stats. MT @Burntskyfilms: Shump has 5 TO for CLE. Nothing has changed we gave him enough time!

Brian Mahoney

Raptors, in a classic trap-game situation, get caught looking ahead to Knicks on Saturday, down 98-57 to Warriors after three.

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks say Hardaway Jr. got 4 stitches on his left eyebrow and is available. Not on bench just yet.

Tina Cervasio

As just reported on @MSGNetworks Hardaway Jr. Is getting stitches near his left eyebrow & right now is expected to return. #Knicks

A lot of bloody noses tonight btw #Knicks #Pistons Hardaway Jr. Back in locker room w trainer after Amundson's elbow hard to his face

Marc Berman

Bargnani blocks Greg Monroe here early in the third. That doesn't fit the narrative.

Marc Berman

#Pistons up 53-41 at halftime. Greg Monroe has 14 (6-8) with 5 boards.

Chris Herring

Lmao. I tweet "Dallas is the worst city of all-time," and immediately four people from NJ tweet back like, "Naaaah...."

Calderon getting MRI tomorrow. If out awhile will then use their open roster spot.

No Larkin in starting lineup. Langston, Tim and Cle.
