Anthony Mason, a longtime NBA player and fan favorite on the New York Knicks, has passed away at the age of 48. After being diagnosed with congestive heart failure earlier this month, the 13-year NBA veteran suffered a massive heart attack Saturday morning.
Mason, who is commonly known for his five year stint in New York where he helped the Knick’s win the Eastern Conference Championship and reach the 1994 NBA Finals, was still in recovery of a previous heart attack he endured weeks ago. Sources close to Anthony, stated that his condition was starting to improve. Then earlier today, a Knicks spokesperson confirmed to ESPN the terrible news. He will surely be missed. Our condolences go out to Mason’s family and loved ones.
R.I.P. Anthony Mason.
