Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has the best view in the house for the third presidential debate.

The 7-foot-2 former basketball star snagged a front row seat for the final face-off between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in Las Vegas on Wednesday night. Abdul-Jabbar is attending the debate as Clinton’s guest, joining Leon Panetta, Mark Cuban and Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman on the Democratic nominee’s side.

Meanwhile, the person slated to sit behind Abdul-Jabbar is likely looking for a booster seat.
