    As I've promised you all, here is that very interesting article from Basketball Pioneers about how and when Uncle Mutombo start wagging his finger.

    Just want to share with you guys this article on this history-making day as my kudo and salute to Uncle Mutombo, a great warrior and one of the best buddies of Yao Ming on the Rockets.

    ENJOY !!!! :D :D :D

    You know something just occured to me. He is the best shot blocker in history, better than Hakeem. He didn't get into the NBA until he was 25. He started college at the age most were going pro. If he had those three years he would have the record. No knock on Hakeem love him to death but if you ask who is the best blocker I think it is Deke. (will say I need to do research on it to fully confirm but this is my belief t the moment).

    They should have asked him if it's true what they say about guys who have longer index fingers than middle fingers.

    Not the first or last time SINA will have a plagiarized article pertaining to the Rockets. If you make an insightful post on this board, it'll be the basis of somebody's article over there.

    Poor pryuen, who spent hours translating an article into English which was actually translated from English after all.

    At least we get to see what a fine job Pryuen does when translating Chinese articles. Not much lost in translation! :D
