Former New York Knicks Player Anthony Mason Dead At 48

Anthony Mason, the tough forward who helped power the bruising New York Knicks teams of the 1990s, died on Saturday February 28, 2015 in Manhattan. He was 48.  


The former NBA player suffered a massive heart attack in early February 2015 and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

Earlier this week, the athlete's family had claimed he was "getting better" following operations on his heart, but he later succumbed to his condition.

Mason is best known for his time with the Pat Riley-coached Knicks teams featuring John Starks, Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley and others. They never earned an NBA title, but battled the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls and other teams with a defensive-minded approach to basketball. The Knicks reached the NBA Finals in 1994, losing to the Houston Rockets.

Mason also played for the Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, New Jersey Nets, Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks during his 13-year career. He received the NBA Sixth Man of the Year honor in 1995 and was named an All-Star in 2001. 

In the TV show "New York Undercover", Mason appeared in two different episodes, playing himself in one. He also plays a pickup player in the 1996 movie "Eddie and himself in Woody Allen's "Celebrity".

Mason also appears in the Diamond D rap video "Best Kept Secret," dunking his way through the clip on a New York City playground basketball court.

The Beastie Boys song "B-Boys Makin' With The Freak Freak" from 1994's "Ill Communication" LP mentions him with the lyric "I Got My Hair Cut Correct Like Anthony Mason" - The Beasties being NY Knicks fans.

He also makes an appearance in the Beastie Boys music video "Root Down".

Mason's son, Anthony Jr., played basketball for St. John’s University, while his other son, Antoine, plays for Auburn University.

Kelly Osbourne Leaves "Fashion Police" After Zendaya Controversy

Kelly Osbourne has reportedly made the decision to leave Fashion Police.  

Sources claimed that Osbourne, 30, was already facing issues with the fashion show before Guilana Rancic's insulting remarks about Zendaya, 18, looking like she smelled of "patchouli oil and weed" sparked a huge controversy.

Even though Osbourne threatened to quit the show last week if the unpleasant situation wasn't resolved, it still comes as a surprise since Zendaya accepted Rancic's apology.

"I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same," Kelly first tweeted.

Madonna's Stylist Shares Hilarious Photo Of Herself Covered In Cupcakes Backstage After Her Brit Fall

Madonna's stylish B Akerlund was absolutely shocked when the pop icon took a nasty fall at the Brits.  

But rather than paying too much attention at the unfortunate incident, Akerlund shared a funny photo of herself appearing really shell shocked, covered in smashed cupcakes.

The stylist, who was responsible for the outfit, captioned the image: "#currentmood #britawards"

Just in case you have missed it, Madonna, 56, hit the stage to perform "Living For Love" from her upcoming album "Rebel Heart", but she crashed down a whole flight of stairs.

According to a backstage source, the Queen of Pop was angry after her fall and stormed out soon after her rendition.

The insider said: "Her team were left to pack up and ship out sharpish. Madonna's team had been working on her cape since Monday. It was the only topic of conversation coming from the seamstresses as it had been impressed on them to make it perfect."

"When she fell, the room which has previously been the subject of so much chatter, fell silent," the source went on, adding: "The atmosphere wasn't as if someone had died it was as if someone had been massacred."

Following the terrifying fall, Madonna took to Instagram and praised her giant black designer cape,  jokingly saying: "Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I'm fine! #livingforlove."

Madonna Reveals She Has Whiplash And Calls Her Brits Fall A Nightmare

Madonna has revealed she has whiplash after her Brits fall and called her own performance "a nightmare".  

Stopping by the "Jonathan Ross Show", Madonna, 56, was quoted as saying: "I'm a creature of habit I rehearse everything, everything, everything. I was thrown a wrench at the beginning of the performance. I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further and everyone was worried my cape was slide off so they tied it really tight around my neck".

"So here I am marching in like the queen, I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled the silky string and it wouldn't come undone," the Queen of Pop went on.

"My two lovely Japanese dancers they basically strangled me off the stage. I had two choices, I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall," Madonna added.

Wossy tried to show a video of the unfortunate incident at the Brits, but Madonna claimed: "I don't want to see it, don't make me watch," pointing out: "It was a nightmare, I like to be amazing, I rehearse and rehearse so when I do a show it is effortless and I create magic. I did the opposite, I actually created a horror show for everyone."

Wossy then wondered if it was a stunt and the pop icon denied it by shaking her head.

Madonna said: "I'm never writing lyrics like that again the universe was trying to teach me a lesson. I didn't hurt my butt but I hurt my head. I know how to fall, I have fallen off my horse many times".

"I had little bit of whiplash, I smacked the back of my head. And I had a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3am to make sure I was compos mentis. I am always nervous of live TV, when you singing you can't make any mistakes, the worst thing is you fall down stairs," Madonna explained, adding: "I like to make my shows dangerous but then there is danger."

Asked about the cape, the pop star replied: "No more capes, cape fear is over."
