Default Does anyone remember this picture of Dikembe Mutombo?

I'm looking for an old picture of Dikembe Mutombo.

But now I can't find it anywhere and I'm starting to wonder if I just imagined it.

I feel like they used to show it during those "NBA Cares" promos when he was still playing.

Anyway, he was in the Congo, or some other African country, with a bunch of kids.

They were like all running up to him to give him a hug or something, and he had his arms stretched wide with a giant smile on his face, head tilted at an angle and the sun gleaming on him angelically.

He looked like some combination of Jesus, God and Santa Claus, but black.

This image has never really left my mind, but was it ever there to begin with?

check out the lady on the right's hand and the look on the kid's face. he's trying to tell Mutombo but he can't muster the courage.

I appreciate the effort but I already Google Image searched. In fact, it's the first thing I usually do when searching for an image.

Check out Kblaze's mix. There's a few clips in there that are sort of what you're asking for.

I feel like I know what you're looking for but I'm not sure where I saw it.

Mutombo is a good guy.

He helps his people in practical ways.
