What ever happened to The Dikembe? What ever happened to the finger wag in the face to say, “don’t you do that again”? After watching last night’s game, which featured copious amounts of blocks, I wanted to see someone, anyone, give the finger wag. It has to be one of the best “F U” things to do that isn’t perceived as being offensive. I think it was only called as taunting once or twice (a.k.a. It’s Fire).
I realized The Dikembe isn’t just for basketball though. It is for life. A buddy of mine is from Houston, and we used it a number of times during beer pong. Needless to say, any games The Dikembe was used, we won.
The most recent person I’ve Dikembed was someone who tried to jump their turn at a four-way stop while on the way to class this morning. I’ve been informed that honking my horn is inappropriate in the South, so I have turned to “Dikembeing” asshole drivers. They got the message. I’m just waiting for some rapper to make up “The Dikembe Song” to challenge “The Dougie” and “Bernie.” The Dikembe sounds way better than that.
If you want to get ahead of the curve in life, I invite you Dikembe the next person you encounter that does something wrong. They will feel shame and know they have been owned.
Not to mention everything Dikembe did was straight fire. Well, maybe not his bowling. See Dikembe Fire below:
