Yes, I saw the Blazers players and staff applauding him too. This guy was THE biggest class act of the last 2 decades.

The video of the Rockets players impersonating him

Only 1 Dikembe Mutombo

Should have ended his career in NY, playing for us instead. We could have used him all these years. Still, it's good he made his way to Houston and taught Yao a couple of things.
