    Anthony Mason, a bruising power forward who personified the gritty Knicks of the mid-'90s, died early Saturday morning, a source confirmed to the Daily News. He was 48. Mason had suffered a massive heart attack earlier in the month.
    Mason played 13 seasons in the NBA with six teams but is best remembered for his days with the Knicks. After playing abroad and in both the CBA and USBL, Mason had brief stints with the Nets and Denver before being signed by Pat Riley, who admired his rugged style and his playmaking ability. Along with Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley, he helped give the Knicks of the early ’90s one of the most physically imposing front lines in NBA history.
    "First I want to think all those who offered prayers and well-wishes for my Father, our family really appreciates it," Anthony Mason Jr. said in a statement.
    “Overnight New York City and the world lost a legend, a friend, a brother... but more than anything our father, Anthony Mason,” Mason Jr. continued. “As you all would expect our father - Big Mase - put up an incredible fight, dealing with a severe heart issues. 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. ‘”

    Hated his teams since they were butting heads with my Bulls at the time, but dude played hard and squeezed every bit of potential from his limited talents. RIP.

    Back in 2011, Mason took a job in life insurance with the Hotaling Group, a firm based in Manhattan. He was in the division that helps provide coverage to several high-level amateur prospects, protecting their future earnings. While he made over $40 million in his NBA career, Mason took the job because he had his own money and tax issues and wanted to help others not make the same mistakes.

    still think that worked out ok for him: he got to do what he wanted to do: play pro ball. get laid often with many hot girls. get paid really well for playing a game he was good at. check out before his body totally fell apart and he would have to live agonizing at all the things he used to be able to do for fun that are no longer available to him.
