New stuff at 28th and Girard sent to me by these cool dudes.
Is this a basketball reference? Weeeird.
one of the funniest quotes from an athlete, and became one of his trademarks. Fans would ask him to repeat this all the time, and became this cult status.
Here’s where the quote comes from:
The “Who wants to sex Mutombo?” Story
In the summer of 2001, a listener called in to Jim Rome’s syndicated radio show, at the time known as “The Jungle” or “The Jim Rome Show.” The caller reported that he was in Georgetown one night in the early 1990’s, when basketball player Dikembe Mutombo was a big star there. The caller was in a bar frequented by Georgetown students, when Mutombo came in the door. The bar went silent as everyone turned to look at the 7’2″ African. Mutombo responded to the attention by bellowing, in a deep and echoing African accent, “WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO?!??”
On TMZ a couple of years ago one of their staffers told a story about how he was at a party at Georgetown during the time when Dikembe Mutombo was on the basketball team (over 20 years ago), and Mutombo walked into the party and announced, “Who wants to have sex with Dikembe?” A similar story’s been around a while before that, according to a Google search. Some think it’s an urban legend though the TMZ guy swore he was there in person.
