VIDEO: Serge Ibaka Denies LeBron James, Swipes Dikembe Mutombo's Finger Wag

When LeBron James gets a head of steam going to the basket, nobody can block his shot. That is, except for Serge Ibaka.

The Thunder big man is known for his highlight blocks and he came up with a beautiful one on James to end the first quarter. James easily got by Thabo Sefolosha and cocked his right hand like he always seems to do. Normally, this means a thunderous slam and a series of "ooohs" from the peanut gallery. This time, Ibaka decided to meet him at the rim and send it back.


Almost everything about this was great. The only thing that wasn't? Ibaka swiping Dikembe Mutombo's signature finger-wag move. I expect Ibaka to pay a hefty fee for licensing that move.
