During the NBA Awards Ceremony on Monday night, Charles Barkley was pointing out some of the legends in attendance.  When he got to Bill Russell’s name the NBA legend made the most of his brief time on camera.

Russell cracked a smile as he flipped Barkley off.  It’s a legendary moment from a true living legend.  If you didn’t already love Russell, this moment should do it.

This comes after he told some of the best big men who ever played the game that he would kick their ass during last year’s award ceremony.  His recent award show appearances is just adding to his legend.
