"Anthony Mason Jr." has been the top Google-searched term leading people to the friendly confines here at Ridiculous Upside over the past three days, believe it or not, so I was happy that I was able to find yet another reason to talk about him even though he was cut by the Miami Heat earlier in the week.
In an interview with SNY's Adam Zagoria on Thursday, Mason Jr.'s father - and former NBA player - mentioned that he'd like to get into coaching in the NBA and, more importantly to the D-League contingent, extolled some advice for his son and the next step in his professional basketball career.
"He's talking about going overseas, but I think I would rather see him go to the [NBA] Developmental League because I feel like he has the talent to be in the league," he said. "He just has to work on a few things."
The elder Mason was able to put together a 13-year NBA career and shaved words into his head so I'm going to assume he knows what he's talking about. If he's able to convince Anthony Mason Jr. to give the D-League a shot, Mason Jr. would currently be property of the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
