Cuttino Mobley Retires

Cat Mobley

Cuttino “Cat” Mobley has been forced to retire after 11 years in the league due to a potentially fatal heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This is the same condition that took the lives of Hank Gathers and Reggie Lewis. After being traded to the New York Knicks and having to undergo a physical as a part of the trade requirements, this serious and previously undetected condition was discovered. He saw several specialists around the country and they all advised him of the risks he faced if he were to  continue playing. I guess his heart really was “broken” after he was separated from his BFF, Steve Francis! That’s awful, I know…a new low, even for me. I couldn’t help it though! Anyway, Cat I wish you all the best in your life after basketball.
