Bill Russell is the best NBA player ever. He is the greatest winner to ever play the game.


Let's look at his career accomplishments.

1. He led the University of San Francisco to two NCAA championships.

2. He led the U.S. Men's basketball team to the Gold Medal in the 1956 Olympics.

And one other small thing -

3. He won 11 championships with the Boston Celtics!

Enough said, Bill Russell is the greatest NBA player ever. I rest my case!!

Yes, I agree with you.

Even though I've always been a huge Lakers fan, I'd have to agree with you.

Bill Russell's career was just incredible. There's no doubt that he was an amazing athlete.

But I think the one thing he possessed that made him so good was a desire to dominate and be the best. He had that mental edge over his opponents. I think that's something that's missing in a lot of the NBA players today.

He wanted to win every single game, every year. You don't find many players like that today.

The other thing that makes his accomplishments that much better is the fact that he was only 6'9" tall. Not real big for a center - but he certainly dominated the paint.
