RIP Anthony Mason
Former Knicks player Anthony Mason has died after nearly two weeks when he was rushed to the hospital after having a heart attack.
A week ago, according to CBS and other media reports, the agent for former NBA forward Anthony Mason received hopeful reports on Mason’s health from family members following the ex-basketball player’s heart attack, reports the New York Daily News. The news devastates Knicks fans and the millions who loved the former NBA player.
After being hospitalized, it was reported Mason was “fighting for his life” and that he was in critical condition. Mason’s agent, Don Cronson, said there have been some improvements but the gentle giant just could not overcome his condition.
Mason played 13 season in the NBA with multiple teams. His most noted time was when he was with Knicks and made an impressive offensive line. He saw his first All-Star game with Milwaukee in 2001.
