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...
I could have sworn that somebody on this here incredible UPROXX network had already written about the Dikembe Mutombo Geico commercial, or maybe it’s just that I’ve watched it so many times that it’s tattooed on my brain and I see his goofy grin every time I open my eyes. Whatever the case may be, between my ridiculous car insurance payments and commercials about human women...
Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo. The name alone is Basketball Hall of Fame worthy, Just ask the man himself.

Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin hosted a launch party for the “Jeremy Lin Foundation” at Minute Maid Park in Houston last night. Yao Ming and Dikembe Mutumbo were in attendance and the three past and present Rockets gathered for a pic before the soiree.There’s a joke somewhere in the picture.-TO
J.J. Watt and Yao Ming Couple Up
Yao Ming is...
How chubby did Yao Ming get? And why isn't he happy? He is jealous this Jeremy Lin kid who grew up in America is stealing his thunder as the Chinese Basketball player? Dikembe Mutumbo is always happy. No matter where he is.
JJ Watt recently tweeted a picture with the biggest man in Houston sports, Yao Ming. The photo by itself is comical enough. Watt is a 6′ 5″ NFL star and looks like a 6th grader troubling Yao Ming for an autograph. As great as this photo is, it made me wonder of many of the [...]
