QUEENS — Anthony Mason’s fans will get a chance to bid a final farewell to former Knicks forward who died last week at the age of 48, team representatives tweeted Tuesday.

A public viewing will be held at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York in Jamaica this Thursday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., the tweet read.

A private funeral will be held on Friday for the Queens native and Springfield Gardens High School star, according to the cathedral.

The team also tweeted that “the Mason family asks for their privacy during the funeral and thanks everyone for their support and prayers.”

Team reps declined to provide more information saying that services are organized by the family. 

Mason, who played with the Knicks from 1991 to 1996, suffered a massive heart attack in February and died last Saturday.

The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York is located at 110-31 Merrick Boulevard in Jamaica.
