Funeral services were held Friday for former Knicks basketball star Anthony Mason – known to many as a local kid who made good.
Anthony Mason Jr. says he wants to give New Yorkers an opportunity to pay their respects to his father, a beloved figure with the mid-90s Knicks.
Written eulogies and memories of Mason have flooded the Internet the last couple of days, because he was a man that was far from the perfect player but was someone Knicks fans loved.
Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason opened Monday’s show remembering Mason, whose heart problems turned out to be too much to overcome. He died Saturday morning at 48.
Mason, 48, suffered a heart attack in early February.
“I actually spoke to him (Monday),” Antoine Mason told AL.com. “He can’t talk yet, but he can hear things and respond by blinking and shaking his head and things like that.”
The Knicks fan favorite isn’t out of the woods yet, but his condition has reportedly been upgraded from “moment to moment” to “day to day.”
The Knicks community is rallying around Anthony Mason after the former bruising forward reportedly suffered a major heart attack.
With the abundance of unfortunate stories circulating through the news cycle, Boomer and Craig began Thursday’s radio program on a somewhat somber note.
A popular Knicks forward from the 1990s is reportedly in the fight of his life.
Mason says he’s been unable to land a job with the team despite an obvious need to get back to what worked 20 years ago, when the Knicks reached the NBA Finals under former coach Pat Riley.
