NBA Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan and legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully all were honored by President Barack Obama with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday.
The ceremony included a long list of celebrities, including Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and Ellen Degeneres. President Obama cracked jokes throughout his speech, including refering to MJ as “the guy from Space Jam.”
