WATCH: Michael Jordan emotional after receiving Presidential Medal of Freedom

Former Bulls legend Michael Jordan won six NBA titles and was the greatest player the association has ever seen, and he was awarded with yet another accolade on Tuesday.

But this one was a big one, and Jordan accepted it at the White House.

Jordan, among with 21 honors, was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama, and he seemed to be taken back after receiving the award.

And while some questioned whether or not Jordan’s resume dictated that he should be presented with the prestigious honor, Obama said that he was “”more than just the best player on the two greatest teams of all time, the Dream Team and the 1996 Chicago Bulls”  during his speech.

Another piece of hardware for His Airness to place on his mantle. He’s probably running out of room at this point.
