Dikembe Mutombo GEICO CommercialOne of the greatest shot blockers in the history of the NBA is now the star of GEICO’s new commercial. Dikembe Mutombo was known for waving his finger to let scorers know not to come in his territory. How happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to GEICO? Happier than Dikembe Mutombo Blocking a Shot. GEICO has aired a series of creative commercials featuring athletes such as Ed “Too Tall “Jones and Brian Orakpo.

The 7 ft 2 in, 260-pound center is commonly referred to as one of the greatest shot blockers and defensive players of all time, winning the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award four times. On January 10, 2007, he surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the second most prolific shot blocker, in terms of career blocked shots, in NBA history, behind only Hakeem Olajuwon. He is a member of the Luba ethnic group and speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Tshiluba, Swahili, Lingala and two other Central African varieties.

A well-known humanitarian, Mutombo started the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation to improve living conditions in his native Democratic Republic of Congo in 1997. His efforts earned him the NBA’s J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award in 2001 and 2009. For his feats, Sporting News named him as one of the “Good Guys in Sports” in 1999 and 2000, and in 1999, he was elected as one of 20 winners of the President’s Service Awards, the nation’s highest honor for volunteer service.
