    Great player, great person. What he did for his home country Congo is nothing short of awesome.

    Look at those feet. It’s like he has an extra ankle in there somewhere.

    Judging from this pic, Dikembe could palm my car.

    One thing I’ve always wondered about Mutombo is his kicks. He’s been wearing those since about 2000, and they must be pretty hard to find nowadays. I wonder if Nike carries on re-producing them just for him, or if he just doesn’t change them very often. Considering his humanitarian ways, I can imagine he has bigger things to worry about than changing his shoes every game or two.

    Great pictorial/photo shoot to go with the article. Of course since I remember the pics more than the write up of course. Did remember that Tagline “Tough D” that was the opener with both his hands palm out towards the camera.
