Looking at the history of my neighborhood, Springfield Gardens, I came across the names of a couple people who grew up there. One of the names were Anthony Mason, an NBA player. He died of heart failure recently this year, but had several points of success throughout his life. His NBA achievements included being a 2001 “NBA All Star”, 1997 “All-NBA Third Team”, 1997 “NBA All Defensive Second Team”, and the 1995 “NBA Sixth Man of the Year”. Although my neighborhood has a negative side to it, its good to know that someone positive has came out of it.
