ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Like we always do at this time, let’s take a look at the best instances of people getting #POSTERIZED over the last week and, at the bottom of the post, you can place your vote for a winner. And don’t forget, if you see someone get posterized, tweet it with the hashtag #POSTERIZED so we don’t miss it!

This week the Posterized Poll is dedicated to the patron saint of POSTERIZING, the great Dikembe Mutombo. Tonight the Atlanta Hawks host the Boston Celtics (8:00 p.m. EST, TNT), and during a special ceremony the Hawks will retire Mutombo’s number 55 jersey. Mutombo had plenty of highlights during his time with the Hawks, as you can see in the video below.

What you don’t see are all the times Mutombo got POSTERIZED. Because if we’re being honest, Mutombo used to get POSTERIZED all the time. That’s the inconvenient truth of being a shot blocker in the NBA — when you’re trying to protect the rim as frequently as Mutombo used to patrol the air up there, you’re going to get dunked on, you’re going to get put on a few posters. That’s the way it goes, I guess.

Finally, congratulations to last week’s winner, Kawhi Leonard!

Now, let’s go to the posters!

    Mutombo was not at all used to be posterized .What you say? At the last end of his rockets time,sometimes a bit arrived .You don’t show respect to dikembe ,but i don’t blame you lang ,you’ll improve in your basketball point of views, focus on positive ,don’t listen to trolls who don’t overcome all basket dimensions throughout all decades.
