Dikembe Mutombo, 1992-93 Upper Deck Fanimation (NBA Playoffs Week No. 6)

Name: Dikembe Mutombo; also, apparently, "The Warrior"
Team: Denver Nuggets
Position: Center, killer of monsters
Value of card: 12 pounds of crushed monster flesh and bone
Key 1991-92 stat: 150 racial undertones
Yes, somehow, this was OK: No, no. Nothing wrong here. Let's allow a fan to draw a semi-racist picture of Congolese NBA star and humanitarian Dikembe Mutombo fighting a bunch of monsters and then make a card of it. Let's have Mutombo wield medieval weapons but not wear pants in the picture. Let's call him "The Warrior" even though that was never, ever his nickname. Let's make the depiction look just like him. On second thought, let's make it look nothing like him. Perfect.
