Bill Clinton and Dikembe Mutombo are All-Star buddies

Monday February 16th, 2015

Former President Bill Clinton sat courtside with NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo at last night's All-Star game at Madison Square Garden, and the two seemed to have a great time hanging out.

They laughed about Pau Gasol erasing a Klay Thompson shot and Mutombo pulled out his signature finger wag.

The pair even staged a fun Twitter photo to solidify their friendship.

Clinton also made a slightly shorter friend at the game in Chris Paul's son, Chris II.
