Former Net Anthony Mason is Fighting for his Life

Former New Jersey Net, Anthony Mason is “literally fighting for his life” due to a serious congestive heart ailment, according to multiple reports. It is reported that the issues have been going on for the last year. Adding to the problem is that Mason’s weight has gotten as high as 350 pounds which is approaching 100 pounds above his playing weight.

Anthony Mason, now 48 years old, suffered a heart attack and has reportedly undergone four heart surgeries at a New York hospital.

Anthony Mason played for six teams in his 13-year career which included the Nets when the franchise was in New Jersey during the 1989-90 season. He averaged only 1.8 points per game in 21 games that year.

Anthony Mason is cult figure in New York. His style of play always endeared himself to Knicks fans. Prayers go out to him and his family from the folks here at Brooklyn’s Finest.
