Check out that height difference!

Andrea Mitchell sat down with NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Wednesday to discuss his new post as a State Department cultural ambassador.

Mitchell immediately commented on the height difference between herself and Abdul-Jabbar. She also told him that it was "quite daunting to meet a legend."

As a cultural ambassador, Abdul-Jabbar will travel around the world and meet with youth. He travels to Brazil on his first official trip next week, where he will set up a basketball tournament.
