Dikembe Mutombo is Not a Good Business Man

This story of former-NBA center Dikembe Mutombo, one of the most feared defensive players in the league during his career, has been an even better humanitarian for the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Because of that, and that Mutombo remainbs one of my favorite players ever, it’s painful to read this story of him getting swindled by a Congolese warlord, who ended up profiting handsomely off of Mutombo’s naive enthusiasm and complete lack of due diligence when attempting to purchase some $30 million in gold.

Tough lesson to learn, but Mutombo is smarter than most and will never be taken advantage of again, if I had to make a guess.
