The Enigma of Legend Bill Russell
William "Bill" Felton Russell (February 12, 1934- July 31, 2022), was an iconic professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics from 1956 to 1969. Russell played 13 seasons for the Celtics, averaging 22 rebounds, 15 points, and 4 assists in 963 regular-season games. His 11 overall championship titles are a National Basketball Association (NBA) record. In addition to his career as a professional player, Bill Russell was the first African American coach of a major professional sports team in the USA. When Bill Russell was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1975, Red Auerbach, who coached him on nine championship teams, called him “the single most devastating force in the history of the game.”
Bill Russell passed away at the age of 88, on July 31, 2022.
