Default Dikembe Mutombo named NBA global ambassador

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=5039

NBA Commissioner David Stern announced today that Dikembe Mutombo will join the NBA in the newly created position of global ambassador. Mutombo will report to Executive Vice President, Social Responsibility & Player Programs, Kathy Behrens.

After retiring from a playing career that spanned 18 seasons, Mutombo will now work to grow and celebrate the game through numerous international NBA events including Basketball without Borders. In addition, he will work closely on NBA Cares outreach efforts with Hall of Famer Bob Lanier who serves as Special Assistant to the Commissioner.

Hahaha, not pumping my fist, but definitely happy. As always Mutombo is awesome

Is anyone surprised at this news though? He's already made a huge difference on his own, so now he can keep it up with the NBA fronting the money. He just did an NBA/Taco Bell deal thing about world hunger a few weeks ago.

Bob Lanier really seems to love the NBA Cares stuff. So having 2 people that interested will be good for basketball and the NBA.
