If you ever wondered what goes on in the NBA’s New York offices, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a way you can get a behind the scenes look at their daily operations. All you have to do is start up your smart phone, open up Snapchat, add the NBA’s official account as your “friend”, and watch their two-minute video today of Dikembe Mutombo showing you around. (If you don’t have Snapchat, now would be a good time to get it, because why wouldn’t you want to see Mutombo act as a tour guide?)
But if you don’t want to do that because you cant afford to spend two-minutes out of your day to watch a video, or you just don’t have a way of getting the app, that’s okay. We understand. So, instead, here’s a condensed version, showcasing only the best parts from Mutombo’s tour, which happens to be, well, all of it.
Mutombo got the tour started by making copies of something. What that something was, we don’t know…yet.
Six seconds later, though, we found out. It was of him wagging his finger as a member of the Atlanta Hawks. What else were you expecting?
Thanks to Mutombo, we now know that the offices aren’t tall people-proof, which just seems wrong, seeing as the NBA is a place where giants roam the streets. They should get someone to look into that.
He then took a seat at Adam Silver’s desk. Now that I think of it, Commissioner Dikembe Mutombo has a nice ring to it, so: #DikembeforCommissioner.
Then he showed of one of the NBA’s most prized possessions: Wilt Chamberlain’s shoes from his record-break 100-point game, signed and dated by Wilt himself.
Time for a quick from your regularly scheduled program. Here’s Mutombo dunking on a lego built Kevin Garnett. Garnett looks pissed.
Mutombo also sent e-mails while working on his fitness. Who says men can’t multitask?
Mutombo flaunted off his versatility, too, taking a break from being a tour guide to answer some calls.
You knew the “No, no, no!” was coming at some point. Mutombo knocked a bag of chips out of someone’s hands and gave them an apple to munch on instead. It’s #NBAFit season, after all.
Mutombo wrapped up the tour by serving lunch to some of the NBA’s employees.
Name me one other NBA player that can be a Defensive Player of the Year, stand in as a commissioner and act as a tour guide? That’s right, you can’t. And that’s why Dikembe Mutombo is the best.
