Never turning 30.
This is the standard exchange when it comes to questions about my age, but its nice to see Dikembe Mutombo is feeling the age sensitivity as well, so I know I'm not alone in this. This article is pretty amusing, and reads like it was written for The Onion; Mutombo is pissed about announcers making jokes about his age, and is going to appeal to the commissioner to make it stop.
Speaking of basketball, I'll be making an appearance over on freedarko again sometime Friday. We'll be getting at Bill Simmons I believe, and that's must-see tv for any basketball peoples.
Mutombo has succeeded in convincing league officials to let him persist with his trademark finger-wagging after blocked shots -- as long as he directs that gesture toward a section of the crowd without wagging his finger in the direction of an opponent -- and believes Stern will be sympathetic to his anti-joke crusade, too.
"The commissioner and I are good friends," Mutombo said. "I will find a way somehow to talk to him.
"He's a great man. He can make it stop."
