The NBA offseason is slowing down and rosters are being finalized. Every offseason, there always seems to be a report or two about a retired athlete looking for one last opportunity in the league. This year, Cuttino Mobley is trying his best to make a comeback after an extended break in the NBA.
Mobley spent the last three years of his career with the Los Angeles Clippers. However, after leaving the NBA, he spent the last few years founding a wellness center in Rhode Island. The center provides cannabinoid drugs for patients in need of potential therapeutic value such as pain relief, control of nausea, vomiting and appetite stimulation.
Due to a five year absence and a heart condition that forced his exit during the 2008 season, Mobley will have a very tough time making a comeback. The veteran guard is reportedly working out and playing at the Clippers’ practice facility alongside players Blake Griffin and Darren Collison.
At 38 years old, he’ll have to take some time re-adjusting to the NBA style of play. It’s probably in his best interest to work his way up from the D-League. It’s most likely his best chance at grabbing a spot on an NBA roster this year.
