Who Wants To Hex Mutombo?

It’s a sad day for basketball fans and finger wavers everywhere: Rockets backup center Dikembe Mutombo’s career is over after he suffered a knee injury last night in Houston’s loss to the Portland Trailblazers.

“For me, basketball is over,” he said.

Mutombo was taken off the court on a stretcher and had to fight back tears in the locker room after the game.

Known as much for his charity work as his NBA career, Mutombo has been an eight-time All-Star and a Defensive Player of the Year four times.

“I’ve had a wonderful 18 years of staying injury-free, so I just want to go out with my head up, no regrets,” he said.

Buck up, Dikembe. As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Hopefully, that door is an entrance to a Georgetown bar.
