Dikembe Mutombo Causes A Stir By Congratulating Philadelphia 76ers On Landing No. 1 Pick

By Timothy Downs

NBA Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo caused quite a stir this afternoon after congratulating his former team — the Philadelphia 76ers — on landing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft via a tweet that has since been deleted.


Obviously, the lottery doesn’t start for a few hours still, so many thought Mutombo had insider information. Not long after the incident went viral, he took to Twitter once again to apologize.

If the ping pong balls indeed end up in Philadelphia’s favor this evening, conspiracy theorists are going to have a field day.
