Is Deke Done?

Has the time finally come? While Dikembe Mutombo has yet to officially declare that his playing days will soon be done, on Wednesday night during halftime of the Houston-Minnesota matchup the Rockets paid tribute to the 17-year vet's outstanding career. The Kinshasa-born athlete received the Defensive Play of the Year award four times throughout his career. He is an eight-time All-Star and has been named to six All-Defensive Teams and three All-NBA Teams. Mutombo has been an integral part of the Rockets' squad this season after teammate Yao Ming announced he'd sit miss the remainder of the season. While some had suggested that the big man bow out years ago, Mutombo has proved that he still has much to offer an NBA team. As his fans, teammates and coaches celebrate his illustrate career, many wonder has the 41-year old had enough? Mutombo explained to the Houston Chronicle, "I want to play this year and go home. If I change my mind, I'll let you know. At some point, I have to come to the decision that I'm going to walk away from this game. If it doesn't happen today or tomorrow, someday it has to happen." Thanks for the clarification Deke.
