Former NBA player Anthony Mason, 48, has died following a massive heart attack earlier in the month, according to ESPN.
His son Anthony Mason Jr. released the following statement Saturday morning:
First I want to thank all those who offered prayers and well-wishes for my Father, our family really appreciates it. Overnight, New York City and the world lost a legend, a friend, a brother … but more than anything our father, Anthony Mason. As you all would expect our father – Big Mase – put up an incredible fight, dealing with a severe heart issue. I’m wishing this was something else I was writing, but Pops we’ve got to let you know we love you and know you’ll always be with us.
He is survived by his mother, Mary, and his two sons who also played basketball – Anthony Mason Jr., who played college with St. John’s and tried out for the Miami Heat, and Antoine Mason, who is currently trying to make it to the NBA. His boys were reportedly by his side when he passed.
