Impossible to rebute..

When I think of nice guys in sports.
I think of guys who did/do more than just make lip service or write a check.
I think of guys that swing a hammer and get a blister on occasion, and/or do the heavy lifting at their charity, not just show up for the ribbon cutting.
I will say that Dikembe Mutumbo was a HUGE massive oversight. Duncan to lesser extent.
