But with Biyombo breaking out and blocking shots during the playoffs, it has drawn more attention – and Mutombo’s ire.
Mutombo, via TMZ:
“I don’t know when did that conversation took place,” Mutombo said … “Him and I need to talk this summer.”
“He claim in the newspaper and everywhere he said I gave it to him. I said, Did I gave him? Was it family? Cosign? But you know what, he’s a young man, man, I let him enjoy the fame. He’s making me famous!”
“I will see him in the Congo this summer so him and I will talk back home with nobody around us.”
This is dumb.
1. Mutombo already approved of Biyombo finger-wagging. Mike Mazzeo of ESPN:
2. I’m sure Biyombo means nothing but to pay tribute to Mutombo and show up opponents – two noble goals. There is no good reason for Mutombo to be upset. He’s being honored.
Yet, this whole thing has Biyombo on edge. Josh Lewenberg of TSN:
Keep finger-wagging, Bismack. Mutombo will come around.
