Members of the Celtics mingled with President Obama Tuesday night in a private meeting during a fundraiser at the Museum of Fine Arts.

The meeting was not open to the media, including the White House traveling press corps. According to the Celtics, the gathering was optional and not all players attended.

“We were thrilled to visit with the President,” Celtics co-owner and managing partner Stephen Pagliuca said in a statement through the team. “He spoke about the Boston Celtics unselfish play and teamwork. It was inspiring for us to hear those words and we told the President we hope to see him in the White House in the fall after the NBA Finals.”
