Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual Legends Brunch on Sunday.

Robertson got the award from fellow Hall of Famer Magic Johnson and Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns — the newly crowned skills challenge winner at All-Star weekend.

The brunch was hosted by the National Basketball Retired Players Association.

Robertson is a past president of the players’ association. In his remarks Sunday he urged the NBA’s current players to study the history of how past players fought for certain rights "and look where you are today."

Johnson said Robertson is one of his heroes, and Towns raved about the chance to share the stage with the "Big O."
