In the 90's, no one wrote more about Mason than Mark Kriegel. Add Mase's HS coach Kenny Fiedler to the mix and you had 3 New York characters

Anthony Mason brought the real city to the Garden, from Freddy Avila, the barber, to Kenny Fiedler, the coach. And all his boys from Queens.

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

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

I'm not against LeBron taking a game off but the timing of it is funny since his "people" just said they want him in the national MVP debate

I hope LeBron realizes that when he hosts SNL - after signing with the Knicks - he can't sit out rehearsal or the actual show itself.

So LeBron's people put it out there that LeBron is confused to why he's not in the national MVP conversation and then sits out the next game
