Meaning

Anthony Mason (b. December 14, 1966) is a retired American professional basketball player. Mason played collegiately and graduated from Tennessee State University in 1988 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. After stints in Turkey, Venezuela, the CBA & USBL — and multiple NBA teams — Mason signed in 1991 with Pat Riley’s New York Knicks. At the Garden, Mason found his groove alongside Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, and John Starks. In 1994, Mason’s strong front court helped lift the Knicks to NBA Finals for the 1st time since 1973, but they fell in seven games to Hakeem Olajuwon’s Houston Rockets. Mason’s career peaked in the mid-1990s, earning the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year Award in 1995; the following two seasons, he lead the league in minutes played. In 1996, Mason was traded to the Charlotte Hornets, where he took All-NBA (3rd team) and NBA All-Defensive Team (2nd team) honors in 1997. Another trade brought Mason to the Miami Heat. Back under Pat Riley, Mason earned a spot in the 2001 NBA All-Star Game, before ending his playing days with the Milwaukee Bucs. During his 13-year NBA career, Mason averaged 10.8 points & 8.3 rebounds.
