NBA Stars Dikembe Mutombo and Steve Smith Come to Morehead City


MOREHEAD CITY, Carteret County - It's not every day that kids get to learn from superstar athletes, but kids in Morehead City got that opportunity on Saturday.

The Boys and Girls Club of Morehead City welcomed NBA All-Star Steve Smith and Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo. Emerald Isle based company Transportation Impact organized the duos first trip to Eastern North Carolina.

"It was our pleasure to come out here, lend our wisdom and our knowledge," says Smith. "For me its great to spend some time with kids, see them smile and have a good time."

Mutombo also enjoyed his time with the kids that came out to the camp.

"Steve and I, we didn't get where we are today if there was not the input of those who walk before us," says Mutombo. "There were so many people who contributed to our life so we feel like we have a moral duty to do the same thing for the next generation."
