Bill Russell Dishing Out a Sweet Burn to Bron Bron


“Hey, thank you for leaving me off your Mount Rushmore.’ He said, ‘I’m glad you did. Basketball is a team game, it’s not for individual honors. I won back-to-back state championships in high school, back-to-back NCAA championships in college, I won an NBA championship my first year in the league, an NBA championship in my last year, nine in between. And that, Mr. James, is etched in stone.” – Bill Russell

This response comes after Lebron James had listed his top 4 NBA players of all time (Bird, Magic, Jordan, Robinson), leaving Russell out. I’m not sure if it is just me, but I’ve noticed Lebrons been getting a bit cocky and who better to put him in his place than good ol’ Billy Russell.

Suck it Lebron. I guess 11 rings doesn’t get you on the Mount Rushmore of basketball.

  1. Those four were big names for our generation… What about the generation before? There were plenty of better players, and Russell is definitely one of them.
