BOSTON (CBS) — It’s a tribute and honor long overdue to an NBA legend and perhaps the greatest basketball player ever to step on a court, Bill Russell.
A new statute of the Celtics legend was unveiled Friday at City Hall.
“I played a team game and only important statistic was who won the game. I will always thank my teammates for allowing me to help them become champions,” Russell said as a special ceremony at City Hall.
