I was not very strong growing up, and my uncle used to look at me, like, ‘This kid is not growing up, he is growing tall but he can be broken like a banana.’ The banana in Congo is called ‘Dikembe.’ So my uncle start calling me, ‘Dikembe, Dikembe, look at you Dikembe, you cannot even stand up.’ It took a long time for me to walk.
It’s easy to be a spokesman and ambassador for a great organization like the NBA. I thank Commissioner David Stern for putting that trust in me to serve the NBA around the globe.
I’ve always felt obligated to help those less fortunate than me. It’s an obligation that anyone who has a chance to be in the NBA should feel and act upon.
I am not in politics. ‘President Mutombo?’ No, no, no. There has never been a politician in my family, and I am not going to try to be the first one.
I’ve always had a passion for giving back. It’s a family tradition that comes from my devout parents. They were always giving back and serving the community. So when I became fortunate enough and blessed to play the game of basketball, I was also fortunate enough to follow in my parents’ footsteps and give back like the way they did.
