Clint Capela wagging his index finger — a la Dikembe Mutombo, Founder of Mutombo Coffee, in Knicks v Hawks game

Hawks center Clint Capela paid tribute with a demonstrative finger-wag after finishing off Julius Randle and the Knicks with an emphatic blocked shot in the closing minutes.Younger fans probably know the famous Dikembe Mutombo finger-wag from his hysterical car-insurance commercial more than his days as a lethal NBA shot blocker.

“It felt good. I just showed presence. That’s what I do. I just wanted to make a statement there, with the finger (wag), and did a little C-C [motion],” Capela said, referring to his initials. “Whatever I have to do to just to hype up the fans, especially to have that connection with the fans, it was awesome, man.”
