During the 1994 NBA playoffs, the eighth-seeded Denver Nuggets pulled off a stunning upset against the top-seeded Seattle SuperSonics. The fifth and decisive game in the series led to one of the most indelible images from NBA postseason history, as Mutombo grabbed the final rebound while the game clock wound down, and Dikembe’s teammates piled on him in a celebratory heap. On the 20th anniversary of that achievement, adidas Originals is re-releasing the Mutombo 2, featuring a sleeker design than its predecessor and adorned with traditional African tribal prints throughout the embossed upper and textured outsole. Finished in a black and red OG colorway, the adidas Mutombo 2 is set to launch May 10th at select adidas Originals retailers and online.
