NEW YORK, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Former Knicks player Anthony Mason is in critical condition after having a heart attack and several surgeries.
His family was preparing for the worst as he reportedly started to have congested heart failure.
He played 13 season in the NBA with multiple teams. His most noted time was when he was with Knicks and made an impressive offensive line. He saw his first All-Star game with Milwaukee in 2001.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony Mason and his family. #Knicks— NBA New York Knicks (@nyknicks) February 11, 2015
His teammate Mark Jackson tweeted his support for Mason.
