NBA: Jackson in line to be Knicks top exec

NBA: Masked James leads Heat to win over Knicks

LeBron James, unhindered by the mask protecting his broken nose, poured in 31 points on Thursday to lead Miami to a 108-82 NBA rout of the New York Knicks. James played for the first time since his nose was broken in a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder a week earlier. He sat out the Heat's victory over Chicago on Sunday, and said before the game he was a little concerned that the black protective mask obscured his vision just a bit.

NBA: Knicks waive World Peace

Metta World Peace's return to New York to play for the team he supported as a youngster ended Monday as the Knicks announced they had waived the NBA veteran. The Knicks also released seldom-used guard Beno Udrih, and both players will be free to sign with any team once they clear waivers. World Peace -- formerly Ron Artest -- is a former NBA Defensive Player of the Year and a native of Queens, New York. He inked a two-year contract with the Knicks in July but appeared in just 29 games this season while battling injuries.
