President Barack Obama was caught on camera in a touching, candid moment with NBA legend Bill Russell following the unveiling of his statue in the city of Boston.
Russell played 13 seasons for the Boston Celtics and brought a record 11 titles to Beantown. The Hall of Famer is the first African-American to be honored with his own statue in the city limits.
The president, who has been open about his NBA fandom, embraces Russell, who turns 80 years old this coming February.
Obama first suggested the need for a Russell statue when he presented the iconic player with a Medal of Freedom back in 2011.
