Retired professional basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where he took a jab at Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“Hello everyone. I’m Michael Jordan, and I’m here with Hillary,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “I said that because I know that Donald Trump couldn’t tell the difference.”

Abdul-Jabbar is the National Basketball Association’s all-time leading scorer and a six-time NBA championship winner. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who he was there to speak about, appointed Abdul-Jabbar as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador in 2012.

Watch Abdul-Jabbar make his entrance at the convention.
