Dikemebe Mutombo is also known as the dude who held the basketball like a newborn baby when the Nuggets became the first No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 seed (the Sonics) in the 1994 playoffs. That legendary shot blocking ability (he's second all time) and that finger wag would also become his trademarks, but he didn't get to see the Finals until the next decade.
His 76ers faced off against a dominant Lakers squad in the 2001 Finals. Allen Iverson's 48 points shocked Los Angeles in Game 1, but the purple and yellow would triumph in the next four games. An injured Mutombo took another trip to the Finals in 2002-03 with the Nets, where they lost 4-2 to the Spurs.
