Mt. Mutombo

Now that the finals are over and the NBA is shutting down for a bit, I'm able to reflect and look back. Sorry, but this is a serious post. Kobe winning is obviously a huge drag for us here at nonoudontgetit, but an even bigger bummer was the loss off Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo. (That's no joke his real name)

This dude is a straight up renaissance man.

His signature Adidas from 94 are super sick...



His foundation raises money to build hospitals in Africa...



His finger wag after blocks is hilarious and intimidating...



Born in the Congo, bro speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and five African languages. And he speaks them all with his crazy African Cookie Monster voice. A voice that has made this my favorite (non-Mike Tyson) youtube of an athlete talking ever:



We'll miss you, big guy.
