Dikembe Mutombo’s legendary NBA career is remembered best by one thing – his iconic finger-wag after blocking shots. And despite the fact that he’s 48 years-old, a video of Mutombo dancing with Amir Johnson and a Johannesburg native at a children’s camp makes it seem like he could still protect an NBA rim.
Seriously, Mutombo moves remarkably well for a 7-2 man with 18 seasons of NBA miles on his body. His rhythm easily bests Johnson’s, too. The Cleveland Cavaliers could use a defensive presence in the paint; maybe LeBron James should give Mutombo a call.
