"He's more prepared, has a bigger chip" says Coach Dan Barto who has personally supervised Anthony Mason Jr.'s basketball drills and strength and coordinating exercises over these past 7 weeks to get him prepared for NBA workouts. "IMG has changed my skill set and motivation to train properly, I will never train anywhere else for the remainder of my career." says Anthony.
Anthony Mason Jr. is no stranger to the stat sheet the 6"7 210lb. forward for St. Johns University: made 23 starts as a freshman in college, as a junior averaged a team leading 14.0 ppg to go along with 4.4 rebounds per contest and was honorable mention ALL-Big East Selection to just name a few of his accomplishments.
After sustaining a sever tendon injury in his foot Anthony could barely walk but started a grueling rehabilitation progress that was captured minute by minute on MTV's True Life: 'I'm Rehabbing My Injury' .
More focused and determined than ever Anthony shows off for the pro scouts. He attended a NBA workout with Phoenix Suns last week and he has two more workouts with the Denver Nuggets today and the Boston Celtics on the 26th of June. Optimistic about his chances of making it and getting past his injury Coach Barto says in regards to Anthony "He's more hungry."
