Philly-related NBA tidbits

Cuttino "Cat" Mobley announced his retirement from the NBA. Mobley attended Cardinal Dougherty and played 12 seasons in the NBA. He averaged 16.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.2 steals per game for Houston, Orlando, Sacramento, and the Clippers. Nothing spectacular, but a solid career. Enjoy retirement, Cat.

Sean Singletary was traded...again. Singletary went to Penn Charter and went on to have a stellar career at Virginia. At Virginia he averaged 15.2 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. He was All-ACC 3 times and was an honorable mention All-American. He is averaging 2.6 points and .9 assists in 9 minutes per game this season. He was traded to Charlotte yesterday, the fourth team of his young career.

Allen Iverson recently sat down with Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic and was asked about the Philadelphia fans. "I see how excited fans get all over the world, and, nothing like Philly." " hear them, and you see how they get in the playoffs and actually get chill bumps running through your body."

"The people that play in Philadelphia should cherish that, man, and should really feel good about the support they have." "That was a great experience for me, and is something that I'll cherish for the rest of my life. And I'll always believe that, you know, they're the best fans." Watch the whole interview here.
