Carmelo Burns LeBron as
Knicks Win in Miami
No surprise that the marquee matchup in New York's 91-86 win in Miami pitted Carmelo Anthony versus LeBron James. Turned out that Melo won both the battle and the war.
Simply put, Anthony shredded LeBron's paltry attempts to guard him. On several drives hoopwards -- whether resorting to straight power-moves or tricky spins -- Melo left James in the dust. Indeed, at the time Melo was putting the finishing touches on any given layup, James was beaten so badly that he wasn't even posterized.
As ever, LeBron's defensive stance was too upright, and the slightest ball-fake drew him completely off-balance. On one embarrassing sequence, LBJ was so mesmerized by the ball that he was unable to react when Anthony executed a nifty back-door cut, caught a lob pass from Amar'e Stoudemire, and scored on an uncontested dunk.

Mike Bibby $6.2M Buyout with Wizards
WASHINGTON -Mike Bibby gave up $6.2 million rather than stay with the last-place Washington Wizards.
The veteran guard reached a buyout agreement with the Wizards on Monday, beating by one day a deadline that will allow him to sign with another team in time for be eligible for a playoff roster.
Bibby played only two games with Washington after he was acquired last week in the five-player trade that sent Kirk Hinrich to the Atlanta Hawks. He will receive the remainder of his $5.6 million salary for this season, but he gave up his entire amount of the final season of his contract for his freedom.
"It's surprising," coach Flip Saunders said. "But I guess you have to give the player credit. Sometimes when you're in the latter part of your career, there's other things that become important, and so you hope the agenda for him is to win."
