R.I.P.: Former NBA Player Anthony Mason Dead At Age 48 *UPDATED WITH VIDEO*

Anthony Mason, the hard nosed former NBA player has died at the age of 48, reports ESPN.

Mason played 13 years in the league after being drafted in the 3rd round by the Portland Trailblazers in 1988. He was cut by Portland before playing a game for the team. A decision I'm sure they regret to this day.

Mason would go on to play 13-seasons in the NBA, for several teams, including the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat.

He was named Sixth Man of the Year in 1995, as a member of the Knicks.

According to ESPN, Mason had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure earlier this month.

Rest in peace Anthony Mason. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Just a physical presence?...dude had mad skills kid, ball handling was crazy for a dude his size...and yes the blazers would have been a better team in the 90s if mason was in their roster...you dont become 6th man of the year if you dont contribute and have a big impact when on the floor

Please tell me why the Trailblazers would regret letting him go? Your trying to make it sound as if he was averaging 25 n 15 a night for years. He was a physical presence. That's all.
