Just caught this pic on Twitter. Bill Russell statue being unveiled at Boston City Hall Plaza. If any athlete deserves homage, this is the dude.
Celtic loving on a Knicks blog? If I gotta explain this one, you don't know much about basketball and what brings out the best in competition. Great competition. Nor do you know much about basketball and performing at a high level despite extremely adverse racial conditions. Thank you Bill Russell.

Flash! Russell and his statue are traded to BK just in time to lead Nyets to one point vic over Miami.LeBron accuses Garnett and Pierce of violating RICO statutes.
Welcome back Sir Steadfast.DoughlanITe doesn't deserve your accolades.He's fycking up again.
Seriously, why does the Bill in the statue look younger than Greg Olden. Or put another way, why does Bill Russell, the honoree, look younger than Bill Russell, the statuesque baller?
