Ryan Mutombo, son of former NBA All-Star Dikembe Mutombo, made the mistake of choosing North Carolina over Georgetown in front of his father. 

Per TMZ Sports, Dikembe broke out his famous finger wag upon hearing his 15-year-old son say he'd like to play college basketball for the Tar Heels:

Ryan added he has yet to receive formal offers from colleges despite being 6'9", so there is still time for his father to hype the Hoyas. 

Dikembe played three seasons at Georgetown from 1988 to 1991 where he played alongside Alonzo Mourning. He was named to the first-team All-Big East in 1991 after averaging 15.2 points and 12.2 rebounds per game. 

After retiring from the NBA in 2009, Dikembe was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015.
