During Tracy McGrady’s Basketball Hall of Fame photoshoot, his former Rockets teammate Dikembe Mutombo had jokes to crack. First Mutombo talked about how McGrady was a bad man, then he mentioned the time he broke his nose. The 51-year-old said in the NBA video: “And too bad I broke his nose too. So people talk about the 22 noses. He was the last victim. I apologize. So if I didn’t break his nose, he wouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame. He showed people how tough he is and he came back.”
“We did raise a lot of money. I raised close to $2 billion, but we just didn’t get a call, and it happens,” Mutombo said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I was very happy with myself. I’m not crying for the fact that we didn’t win. I’m more happy that I was able to pull people together who did believe in my vision to put up that much money. I might be disappointed, but I’m not crying. Things happen, and sometimes they happen for a good reason.”
He believes Leslie Alexander, who owned the franchise for 24 years, made a great choice in selling to Ferttita. “I’ve known Tilman for a long time,” Mutombo said. I”‘m happy he got the team. He’s a great businessman. I think he’s going to follow the spirit of Uncle Les and his vision. I look forward to going to the games and cheering for my Rockets.”
