Meh. Mobley was never more than a "good" player. He was never a star in my mind.

Wait, is Elton Brand still playing?

Shoot, of course you get the glamour of being with a top notch girl, but you don't quite feel complete and satisfied. There's no shame "sealing the deal" with another girl who isn't as pretty, but heck.. at least you got to tap that booty.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

Seeing him last year, he looks older than Mobley does in that photo. At least Mobley seems to have aged gracefully. Francis looks like he's been living under a bridge. He's cooked.

No he didn't? Francis didn't play last season.

Isn't he out of the league because of his previously unknown HEART CONDITION? And, not because no one wanted him?

EDIT: You were talking about Cuttino in that comment right? I couldn't tell after awhile whether you were talking about Cuttino or Stevie.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

I saw him buying groceries the other day. I asked him this very question, and he said he left because he was tired of taking the coach's orders. he wanted to play the game his way, he said. his way and his way only.

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles International Airport police say three-time NBA all-star Steve Francis was booked for alleged public drunkenness.

Airport spokesman Albert Rodriguez says Francis was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Thursday because he was intoxicated, unable to care for himself and combative toward staff.

Rodriguez told City News Service that the 33-year-old Francis was released around 3:30 a.m. Friday when he posted $10,000 bail.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 5.
