Who doesn’t love Dikembe Mutombo? He has a huge heart, a really deep raspy voice and one of the premier shot blockers of our generation.
Add in GEICO, one of the best advertisers today, and we get this magical commercial.
After his Old Spice magic last year, Dikembe outdoes himself again.
Classic 1990s throwbacks.
The other night, we saw the Suns wear their gorgeous black eclipse uniforms and it brought me back to when basketball was so big for me. Tonight, the Bucks will wear their green uniforms. This nostalgia run has got me excited.
As you can see from the above photo, these teams will wear these throwbacks in the upcoming games and I could not be more excited.
Despite the logistical design flaws of big letters, gradients and pointless dropshadows, this was a time in basketball when I really fell in love with the league. Seeing these on the floor one last time is really a great high five for the league.
