Congratulations to one of the biggest (literally) class acts the NBA has ever seen. From his sandpaper-gravel voice to the legendary No-No-No Finger Wag, Dikembe was always one of the most entertaining players, and especially defenders, to ever lace up in the Association.

And on top of all that cool hardwood stuff, he’s also a pretty legendary humanitarian too..





And of course, he dominates commercials harder than he did in the paint..





Classy move by the Hawks rewarding an Atlanta legend and an all around awesome dude. Everything is coming up Mount Mutombo too as he’s entering the NBA Hall of Fame next week as well.

I wonder if MJ is gonna come say a few words?
