Dikembe Mutombo says he never uttered the most famous quote attributed to him

8 Comments

The most famous quote ever attributed to Dikembe Mutombo has nothing to do with his basketball career, but has become an urban legend of sorts nonetheless — and with good reason.

It’s impossible to argue that the idea of Mutombo walking into a bar as a college student at Georgetown and yelling out in a deep, guttural, Cookie Monster-esque tone the phrase, “WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO?” isn’t hilarious.

But it seems to have never actually happened.

Mutombo seemed determined to set the record straight, and his disappointing dispelling of the story can be seen in the video clip above.
