Dikembe Mutombo is a retired professional basketball player who has a net worth of $80 million. During his playing career, Dikembe Mutombo earned over $140 million in salary before taxes. Dikembe Mutombo has earned his net worth through his career in the NBA playing for teams such as Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76er's, New Jersey Jets, Atlanta Hawks, New York Nicks and his most recent, the Houston Rockets. He began his professional career with the Denver Nuggets in 1991 and made quite a name for himself, winning the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. After five years with the Nuggets he signed a contract with the Atlanta Hawks, where he won two more NBA Defensive Player of the Year Awards, as well as NBA's IBM Award. In 2001 he was traded to the 76er's which gave him his fourth Defensive Player of the Year Award. Afterwards he played with the New Jersey Jets, but an injury prevented him from playing his best and he wasn't able to play in the playoffs. In 2003 Mutombo signed with the New York Knicks, but was later traded to the Chicago Bulls, and finally dealt to the Houston Rockets. In the game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Mutombo recorded five blocked shots. Since he was a free agent, he decided to finish out the 2008-09 season with the Rockets, making this his last tour. In the second game 2 in the playoffs against Portland, Mutombo injured his knee and was carried from the field, ending his career in basketball. He officially retired in 2009. Dikembe Mutombo was born in Kinshasa, DR Congo in 1966. He attended college at the University of Georgetown in Washington D.C. with the intentions of becoming a doctor, but was persuaded by the college basketball coach to play basketball. He also interned in the summer for the U.S. Congress and the World Bank. Mutombo is married to Rose Mutombo and they have six beautiful children. Dikembe Mutombo is not only known for his successful career in the NBA basketball, but for his many works as spokesman for CARE, an international relief agency, and for his founding of the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation which has helped to improve living conditions in his native land and helped to build a hospital on the outskirts of Kinshasa, using some of his own money. Mutombo, through his humanitarian works have helped so many low income families. Mutombo was honored by President George W. Bush in his 2007 State of the Union Address for all he's done to help those in need.
Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo (born June 25, 1966), commonly referred to as Dikembe Mutombo, is a retired Congolese American professional basketball player who last played for the Houston Rockets of the NBA. He was the oldest player in the NBA at the time of his final season.
The 7 ft 2 in (2.18 m), 260-pound (120 kg; 19 st) center is commonly referred to as one of the greatest shot blockers and defensive players of all time, winning the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award four times. On January 10, 2007, he surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the second most prolific shot blocker, in terms of career blocked shots, in NBA history, behind only Hakeem Olajuwon. He is a member of the Luba ethnic group and speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Tshiluba, Swahili, Lingala and two other Central African varieties. In the second game of the first round of the 2009 NBA playoffs, Mutombo suffered a knee injury that kept him out for the remainder of the postseason. Soon after the injury, Mutombo announced he had played his last games in the NBA.
Mutombo attended Georgetown University on a USAID scholarship, and his original intention was to become a doctor; however, the Georgetown Hoyas basketball coach John Thompson recruited him to play basketball. He spoke almost no English when he arrived at Georgetown and studied in the ESL program. He became an excellent college center, continuing Georgetown's tradition of producing great big men. He was a celebrated shot blocker at Georgetown, setting a team record of twelve blocked shots in a single game. Building on the shot-blocking power of Mutombo and teammate Alonzo Mourning, Georgetown fans created a "Rejection Row" section under the basket, adding a big silhouette of an outstretched hand to a banner for each shot blocked during the game.
While at Georgetown, Mutombo's international background and interests stood out. Like many other Washington-area college students, he served as a summer
