Though the Knicks have made no official comment, the team, as well as some of Mason’s former teammates, has taken to social media to offer their support as Mason fights for his life, according to the site:
The Knicks… issued a tweet from their official Twitter account before Wednesday night’s game against the Magic. It read, “Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony Mason and his family.”
