Dikembe Mutombo, 1997-98 Upper Deck Court Perspectives (Ball-Busting Basketball Week No. 5)


Name: Dikembe Mutombo
Team: Atlanta Hawks
Position: Center
Value of card: Half the crease in those jeans he's wearing
Key 1997-98 stat: A bunch of blocks, or something
Not in our house: Congolese-American center Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo (actual name, for real) is one of the greatest defensive players in NBA history. He's second on the all-time blocks list, twice led the league in rebounding, was an eight-time all-star and twice won the league's J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. But does any of that excuse wearing jeans that appear to be made of linen? No, no, no.
