Earlier this month, former NY Knicks power forward Anthony Mason had a massive heart attack and was in critical condition. He was eventually diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

We are sad to report that the 48-year-old has passed away, following reports that he’d been getting better.

Huffington Post reports:

The New York Knicks say Anthony Mason, a rugged power forward who was a defensive force for several NBA teams in the 1990s, has died. He was 48.

Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz confirmed Mason’s death, which was first reported Saturday by the New York Daily News.

We are keeping his family and friends in our prayers. May he rest in peace.
