Bill Russell Flips Off Charles Barkley, Calls It 'Pure Instinct'

The second annual NBA Awards was quite an interesting evening as it was and then NBA legend Bill Russell stole the show when he flipped off Charles Barkley.

Before the lifetime achievement award was announced, Barkley was on stage and took the time to thank some of the NBA legends in attendance.  When he got to Russell, the NBA legend responded by flipping the bird at Barkley.

It became even more hilarious when Russell tweeted about it a few  minutes later. He apologized first and then explained that he forgot that he was on live television.  I can't help myself whenever I see Charles it is just pure instinct. See his tweet below!
