The adidas Mutombo is set to return 20 years after its original release back in 1993. Back in 1993, Mutombo entered the league from Georgetown and was playing with the Denver Nuggets. Dikembe Mutombo went on to become one of the greatest shot blockers in NBA history. The adidas Mutombo sneakers are designed to represent Mutombo’s Congolese roots. This sneaker simply had to return, and finally you will be able to find it online at adidas.com on August 24th.
Dikembe Mutombo is also one of the most charitable athletes of all time. No article can be written about Mutombo without mentioning his work to build a hospital in Congo. Mutombo’s persistence, along with over $15 million of his own money ensured that the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital could be opened in 2006. Dikembe Mutombo is one of the truly special athletes of this generation. Visit www.dmg.org for to donate or for more information on his foundation.
