On Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) attended the NBA All-Star game at US Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ. Though McCain “might be fan favorite during Phoenix Suns games,” he “didn’t receive a warm hometown welcome” when he was introduced at the game:

McCain, who’s held his seat in Arizona for 22 years, was greeted with a smattering of boos and hisses when introduced with wife, Cindy, during a break between the first and second quarter of the NBA All-Star game Sunday night.

His presidential opponent Barack Obama was greeted more cordially after a short speech that aired during halftime on the stadium’s monitors and big screens.

The booing wasn’t broadcast during the break, but McCain did give an interview during the game. Watch it:
