This is probably the best Bill Russell video we’ve ever seen. You get much more of a sense of what kind of a force he was, of how much he dominated the court.
There are a lot of testimonials here from various other players as well as the amazing footage.
You might watch this ancient footage and think, well if he played today he’d have a tougher time and maybe that’s true.
The thing about Russell though...well he sums it up best at the end of this video when he says “the thing about the way I play is....my team wins.”
And it always did.
If Russell were playing today, we can promise you his team would win. He would never settle for less.
