Yeah, Bush is the worst thing to happen to black people in A LONG TIME, but it's still nice that Dikembe is getting props for all the hard work he does.

I was juiced when I saw it on TV.

I'm not even going to make a joke about it. Mutombo is an awesome guy and deserves major props.

I got pissed when the President mispronounced his name the last time he said it. Muh-TOOM-bo.

...When America serves others in this way, we show the strength and generosity of our country. These deeds reflect the character of our people. The greatest strength we have is the heroic kindness, courage, and self sacrifice of the American people. You see this spirit often if you know where to look -- and tonight we need only look above to the gallery.

Dikembe Mutombo grew up in Africa, amid great poverty and disease. He came to Georgetown University on a scholarship to study medicine -- but Coach John Thompson got a look at Dikembe and had a different idea. Dikembe became a star in the NBA, and a citizen of the United States. But he never forgot the land of his birth -- or the duty to share his blessings with others. He has built a brand new hospital in his hometown. A friend has said of this good hearted man: "Mutombo believes that God has given him this opportunity to do great things." And we are proud to call this son of the Congo our fellow American.
