NEW YORK (AP) Anthony Mason's game was grit over glitz, more force than flash.

That might not fit some stereotypes of New York, but it was the perfect style for the Knicks of the 1990s, and made the rugged forward a beloved bruiser by teammates and fans.

Mason died Saturday morning, the Knicks said. He was 48.
