Lord of the Rings: Bill Russell
Not many athletes make the “greatest of all time” debate, but Bill Russell is not like many athletes. There is no player in history with more NBA World Championship titles than Russell’s 11. No Celtics player has won more NBA MVP awards than his five. And no player of his era perfected the defensive arts of shot blocking and rebounding quite like Russell. The stalwart center led the Celtics to an untouchable 1960s dynasty as both a player and coach, and also used his voice to speak on the important civil rights issues of the time. He is the heart of the franchise. Learn more about the exceptional Bill Russell here.
