People didn’t really care about Old Spice’s ad campaign with Mutombo trying to save the world but I think Geico has a winner with Mutombo confusing and pissing off everybody in the world by blocking every shot, toss and throw of an object and then running off with that great laugh or giving the finger wag. Just as amusing as seeing Deke smash a box of kid’s cereal was noticing how fast and comfortable he looks running. He looks more fluid than half of the centers in the league and I wont even compare him to how Shaq looked in a Boster Cetlics uni “running.” Pretty impressive for a guy his age but just don’t mention his age because that might still be touchy subject.
