Long gone are the days where Dikembe Mutombo could wag his finger that was the size of a broom handle after swatting a shot into the third row. Also gone are the days of Mutombo’s postgame interviews that were barely comprehensible because of the depth of his voice.
GEICO has re-birthed both the broom handle and the baritone in their recent commercials. And they’re grand. If Mutombo is looking for extra cash that he can donate to better causes, he should definitely consider reading stories to small children or running a phone sex line for women — anything to use that voice.
