The Finger Wag has retired

We were all at the bar last night enjoying a few drinks and watching basketball, when we noticed that someone was being carted off the floor during the Rockets/Blazers game.

Turns out, it was none other than Cookie Monster himself, Dikembe Mutombo. 

This quote from him pretty much seals the deal on him being done with the game.

"I'm going to need surgery. For me, basketball is over. I cried so much about it when I was laying on the floor."

Wow.  That really sucks.  So ends an 18 year career that saw him amass a shit ton of blocks to end up second on the all-time list. 

Good bye, Dikembe.  Your finger wags, Cookie Monster voice, shenanigans and honest to God goodwill towards poor African nations will be remembered
