George Stephanopoulos Thinks Bill Russell Is Morgan Freeman [Video]

During President Barack Obama’s televised inauguration ceremony today, ABC News correspondent George Stephanopoulos accidentally mistook NBA great Bill Russell for actor Morgan Freeman.

You think he just missed the Celtics hat, or just thought Morgan Freeman was celebrating his Irish heritage on this historic day?

He was quickly corrected by what I can only assume was a giggling intern.
