Fans and admirers paid tribute to basketball legend Bill Russell, who celebrated his 80th birthday at the NBA All Star Game tonight.
The feisty champ delivered a memorable response to Lebron James, who apologized sheepishly for leaving Russell off his list of nominees for NBA’s “Mount Rushmore.” Russell celebrated basketball as a team sport and noted that the 11 championships he won with his teams, not the individual glory, were “etched in stone.”
Heh. Tables turned, son.
