No Kyrie Irving isn’t filming a new Uncle Drew commercial. The grey bearded man in the Drew League video is former Houston Rocket star Cuttino “Cat” Mobley. For the young cats who don’t remember Cat during his run and gun days with Stevie Franchise, Mobley was instant offense and good for 20+ a night.
In 2004, he and Francis were sent to Orlando for Tracy McGrady but only played 23 games before being sent to Sacramento. His final seasons in the league were with the LA Clippers and it looks like Mobley likes the LA weather because he’s still there and showing he still has some serious game – despite the 50 shades of grey look.
And don’t think Mobley retired early because he couldn’t play anymore – he had 23 points and 7 steals in his last NBA game. He hung up his pro sneakers because he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which is the same heart issue the late great Reggie Lewis had.
