A native New Yorker and basketball legend has added another award to his trophy case tonight.

Hall of Famer and thirteen-time all-star Bob Cousy was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

The Celtics point guard helped to lead the Boston team to six championships.

The Catholic, who was an All-American at Holy Cross College, is the fourth NBA player to ever receive the medal of freedom.
