Youth players from the Regional Selection Camp in Metro Manila shined the brightest among 72 boys and girls in the National Training Camp of Jr. NBA Philippines 2017 presented by Alaska held at the Don Bosco Technical Institute May 12-13 and at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall on May 14, attended by Orlando Magic guard Elfrid Payton, former WNBA All-Star Sue Wicks and NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo.
Not in the House of Mutombo.
An email supposedly from Dikembe Mutombo made rounds on the Internet, saying he was robbed in the Philippines and is asking for monetary help.
The 4-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year awardee clarified the issue in a video he posted on his Instagram account.
“If you get an email saying it’s from Dikembe Mutombo that I’m asking you for money from the Philippines, it’s not me., Do not answer… do not answer the email. My email was hacked,” he said.
Mutombo added that this was done by “crazy people” who “need to get a life.”
