This has got to be one of the best NBA locker room trash talk videos available to the public eye.

In preparation for the 1997 NBA All-Star game, in the Eastern Conference locker room, Dikembe Mutombo decided to talk some trash. Mutombo, an amazing shot blocker had every right to do so — however, he picked none other than Michael Jordan.

Later that same season, when the Bulls hosted the Hawks, Mutombo met MJ again. During one play, Michael drove baseline and stuffed one over Mount Mutombo. Afterward, Jordan used Mutombo's famous finger wag. Karma's a bi*ch. I'm pretty sure Dikembe later regretted what he said.
